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.

    The cognac reveals some wood notes, a hint of sweetness. Some fresh notes, fruity and a slight rancio note. On the palate: Quite round, complex and dry fruit. A solid length for what it is.

    This VSOP presents a dark amber colour. On the nose some darker, fruity notes. The finish is strong, and lasts for 5 minutes.

    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 by Michel Forgeron Cognac: Eye:  Golden color, with tints of amber Nose: Aromatic - fresh vanilla that vanishes in a bouquet of spring - hyacinty, white narcissus, acacia, and dried lime.  Slightly spicy notes Palate: Flexible and pleasant, light, yet round and persistent.

    Tasting review by Tiffon Cognac: An elegant nose with floral character and a mellow rounded aftertaste with hints of spice and vanilla. Tiffon VSOP can be enjoyed also on ice or long drink in order to highlight the fruitiness of the cognac.

    To the eye, the VSOP Experience is a rich golden colour, like gold honey. Sweet on the nose with vanilla intensity. Notes of orange sit alongside highly floral scents (rose for example) & there's a hint of nuttiness, making it a balanced & warming cognac. Robust on the palate and has a good enduring finish. The VSOP Experience has the taste of a ten to...

    Tasting review by Normandin Mercier: Young, fruity, subtle floral notes - sometimes honeysuckle, sometimes violet.  Slightly spicy with hints of liquorice.  Lively, but without a reason or sweetening on the finish.
