Tasting review

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."

Description

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.

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.


About Pierre Ferrand Cognac

The estate of Cognac Pierre Ferrand is located directly in the ‘golden triangle’ of the Grande Champagne region of Cognac and is owned and run by Alexandre Gabriel. Specializing in old and very old cognacs, Pierre Ferrand is only bottled and shipped to order. They have also developed some unique production techniques of their own that are used in the aging and distillation process and have introduced innovative ways of collaborating with smaller scale producers. Both the vineyards and company headquarters are located in the 18th century Château de Bonbonnet at Ars, just 10 kms from the town center of Cognac itself.
