Monnet VS Cognac
Monnet VS Cognac is a vibrant young blend of distinctly floral eaux-de-vie that also delights with spicy notes and a hint of vanilla. Having aged in Limousin oak casks for two years, its distillation process was carried out with lees for more aromatic elegance. A Cognac staple, worthy of its place in any Cognac collection for its versatility alone - this blend is sure to impress guests in its pure form when served neat or when used to mix cocktails.
In the house of Monnet’s own words:
"Like the salamander, the eaux-de-vie of Monnet VS have mastered the flames of the pot still, acquiring wondrous qualities and exceptional character".
With that in mind, it’s safe to say that this remarkable VS filled with floral-fruity delicacy can be compared to the bliss of a walk in the vineyards on a long and warm summer evening.
Maison Monnet takes pride in crafting Cognacs that can be likened to shining jewels, filled with brightness, polished to perfection and the result of both time and the hard work of man-kind. Passing down secular tradition, enriched through the years and through the different generations, the house of Monnet has been preserving history whilst breaking the boundaries of quality since 1838.
Presentation of the bottle
Monnet VS Cognac is revealed in a wide-set simple decanter design with embellished glasswork which gives the elusion of crashing waves. The label and branding feature navy blue accents, while the presentation sleeve illustrates a blown-up version of the brand’s impressive logo of a fire breathing dragon. Just like the Cognac it beholds, the presentation of this fine Cognac is bright, audacious and full of character.
How to enjoy
Young, bright, exuberant and truly versatile, enjoy this VS in a variety of ways - neat, on the rocks, with a touch of water, with a mixer, or even as the base spirit in your favorite cocktail.
In reading the previous comment, I must agree that for anyone having tasted Remy, Henny, or Courvoisier, Monnet tends to be the prefered product, so the previous rating makes no sense! Much better value and flavor profile, in my opinion, than the big houses. Enjoy!
