Impressing blend of younger Cognacs
I personally visited the house of "Chateau de Cognac" (owned by Bacardi), the producer behind Otard Cognacs. I knew their VSOP and XO and recently tasted the VS, which I believed was outstanding value for money. It's still a VS, but the fruity intense wellbanced taste is exceptional for such a product. The nose is relatively thin. Personally, the aftertaste suprised me - given the younger age of this Cognac. If I would need to guess, there are some older eau-de-vie in there.
The bottle design is similar to the other bottles in the range and distinctive. There are other design that I prefer, but the content is what counts. And it appears, I'm not alone with this judgement. The VS won Gold (Best In Class) in the 2011 International Wine & Spirit Competition, but also constantly an outstanding silver award between 2008 and 2013.
I would recommend this to people who just started to discover Cognac as a drink.
About Otard Cognac
With an ancient tradition tracing back to the middle ages, and to the great Norwegian Viking Ottar, this cognac dynasty has a unique history. Around the same time, the Chateau de Cognac was built in an entirely different place and culture. Eventually, the two histories would unite in the cognac house Otard, founded in 1795. Today, Otard Cognac is amongst the most recognized in quality and remains to take a strong position in the industry. The elegant bottles are a sign of tradition as well as modern values.
