VSOP: Aged 4 Years + Cocktails & On Ice & Cooking

VSOP Cognac stands for "Very Superior Old Pale" Cognac, which is interesting considering that it comes from France. The origin of the abbreviation VSOP dates back to a Cognac order from the British Royal Court. In 1817, King George IV asked the House of Hennessy for a "Very Superior Old Pale", which would become a benchmark for all Cognac houses from then on.

Some use fullstops after the letters, V.S.O.P., which is nothing else than a stylistic preference. Old and pale refers to a Cognac mature in age but not colored or sweetened for that special aroma, one of superior quality. This age designation is also labelled "Very Superior Special Pale", "Very Old", or simply "Réserve" or "Vieux", and indicates that the youngest eau-de-vie in the blend is four years old. As in any other age category, this does not prevent the master blender from using much older eaux-de-vie in order to achieve the perfect harmony for the final Cognac blend.

The average age of a VSOP is often much older. The next age levels are XO Cognac and Napoleon Cognac. Learn more in our selection of educational Cognac articles.

    Tasting review: Eye:  Lovely golden color Nose: Apple pie and raisins, complex, floral yet spicy, with cinnamon, toffee, & mustard seeds. Palate: Beautifully rich, spicy.  The apple tones continue, with hints of home baking, and even bombay mix! A lengthy, aromatic finish of fresh fruits, spices, and soft oak.

    The colour is amber, on the nose some mature wood and vanilla. Dried fruit like apricot and almonds. The taste itsel is round, some fruit and hints of wood again. Mellow aftertaste, structured and some round Petite Champagne notes, such as Fins Bois fruit aromas.

    Otards VSOP combines a strong nose with floar notes, and green fruit with a rougher, earthy tobacco note in the mouth. Slight hint of spices and vanilla, a great product with a solid finish. Clearly some tobacco hints.

    Tasting review from Bertrand Cognac:  Nose: Woody and spicy, revealing forceful, yet subtle tones right from the start.  Swirl to release discreet floral tones. Palate: A full and bold body, revealing spicy notes of coriander and pepper.

    There is no tasting review of Bisquit VSOP, but the producer notes: Appreciated for the subtle interplay of aromas ranging from a core of ripe fruits (dry apricot, honey) and sweet spices (cinnamon, clove) underlined with floral nuances (rose), Bisquit VSOP is smooth and mellow on the palate, with an long lasting finish.

    Review Braasted Organic VSOP: Copper toned eye, flowers on the nose. A balanced VSOP, rather round, still a bit fruity, and sweet aromas.

    Is this VSOP elegant? Yes. The Cognac Camus VSOP has a contemporary, modern look and taste. Rather easy to consume, suggested as a cocktail mixer. On the nose: round notes of fruits, some almond aromas. On the palate: Fresh, light wood and a rather smooth finish.

    After several years in our French fine-grained oak barrels, the spirit develops nutty notes and ages to produce a sweet, caramelized flavor resembling that of toasted almonds. Jasmine: The distillation on the lees is a complex and meticulous process but it gives fruity and musk notes, evoking jasmine aroma.
