Pierre Ferrand Cognac

Pierre Ferrand 1840 Original Formula is a revival of the classic 3 star cognac (***), the vines used for this cognac are located at Angeac, Grande Champagne, the best planting region of the Cognac area. Distilled in the typical Alambic Charentais, aged in oak barrels from Limousin, France. This cognac creation is the brainchild of Pierre Ferrand's Alexandre Gabriel, maitre de chai (cellar master) Christian Guerin and David Wondrich, an American mixologist and spirits & cocktail historian. The bottle shape is based on a Pinet Castillon Cognac from 1840, and how bartending was done in the 19th century for creating cocktails such as the Juleps, Crusta and different punches. An interesting new (& traditional) product. The cognac was finalist in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2012. -Excellent, Highly Recommended 94 points.

Tasting Notes

The producer reviews 1840 *** Cognac as a "cognac that offers ripe, juicy grapes to the nose, accented with meadow flowers, notes of acacia tree blossom and a bracing hint of cedar. On the palate, it's warm with fruit notes yet still very clean. The finish shows lots of honey and spice."

Piere Ferrand Original Formula

I really love this concept of reviving an ancient 19th century blend recipe. One should take into consideration that this liquor is like a time capsule, not comparable to today's standards

I am not a fan

I really love it on ice I must admit. Neat it's a different story though.
