Camus Port Cask Finish from both Cognac and Porto
This is an innovative limited edition offering that, as the name suggests, has finished off the aging process in old port casks. The Camus Port Cask Finish Cognac is the first ever Cognac to be produced in such a manner, and is a delightful blend that will be of great interest to anyone who enjoys fine liquor. Double distilled in small, 2,500 liter Charentais copper pot stills, the final finish was in old Tawny Port 220 liter casks. These were selected by Cellar Master, Patrick Leger, for their incredible aromatic qualities, and has enriched the finished product with an amazing array of flavors, textures, and colors.
Maison Camus of Cognac
The house of Camus is the biggest and probably the best known of all the family run houses. With five generations of expertise, tradition, and savoir-faire, they are genuinely large enough to be a global brand, yet remain small enough and true to their roots to produce wonderful small batch Cognacs such as the Port Cask Finish. The house was founded in 1863, and ever since then have created Cognac masterpieces with the same overriding philosophy: This is to value independence in a world dominated by standardization, to celebrate their own living tradition, to create Cognacs that reflect the very best from their terroir, to seek the exceptional, and are absolutely passionate about taste.
The unique Cognac has been produced in a limited edition of only 3,000 bottles. Each is individually numbered, and presented in a distinctive bottle with easily recognizable label. Port, of course, is a delicious dark red color. The label and cap of the Port Cask Finish is true to this shade, and there are wood patterns that evoke thoughts of the tawny port cask in which the Cognac finished its aging process.
How to enjoy Camus Port Cask Finish
This is a Cognac that can be enjoyed in many different ways. Taste it neat to explore its myriad of flavors, or over ice for a slightly different experience. And the Port Cask Finish has more than enough character to add that very special something to your favorite cocktail. A great addition to any liquor collection.
About Camus Cognac
Since 1863, five generations of the CAMUS family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. With 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - Borderies - renowned for producing eaux-de-vie with an intense floral bouquet and excellent ageing qualities - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the men who live on it, that helps craft superb Cognacs. In 2000, the House premiered with the first ever 100% Borderies XO Cognac. A solid success, it was to become the Camus signature Cognac, offering an outstanding combination of violet and vanilla spice aromas of intense velvety smoothness.

Camus also proposes a Masterpiece collection of rare, limited cuvées, each consisting of a unique, exceptional blend presented in spectacular cases as well as Rarissimes vintages of most extraordinary Cognacs - certified under bailiff’s supervision and bottled without reduction, allowing them to express the full strength of their aroma and character.
