With an incredibly old family tradition, Delamain (et Cie) makes for an exciting cognac house with roots dating back to the early 1600s! The family tree couldn't be more complicated, and yet the Delamain brand has managed to survive since its creation in 1762. This is a cognac house that is unapologetic when it comes to quality, selecting only the very best from its suppliers in order to create its own products. With the British aristocracy having influenced the Delamains for generations, this cognac is authentically catered for blue blood!

Nose: Dark fruits of plum and cherry, a slight spiciness.
Palate: Pepper and oak fuse to finish with a toasted bread, nutty and dried fruit flavor. The finish is more citrus and lemony, with a creamy and woody finale.
Tasting review by Grosperrin:
A deep amber color. On the nose, musky aroma, winey (vieux Sémillon), with a touch of acetic notes. On the palate, the first notes have a predominance of nutmeg and licorice. The finish is quite short.
Tasting review by Bache Gabrielsen:
Nose : Wonderfully rich in fresh fruit notes, with touches of oak furniture and new leather. Palate : Continued grape, apple and mandarin juiciness. Herbaceous at points. Finish: Cinnamon, clove, and lasting sweetness of yellow plum.
