A new famous VSOP
It is interesting how many awards, this cognac has.
VSOP of the year in 2017 and 2020 from World Cognac Award, at least not mentioned in the description.
It is an interesting and very smooth cognac. I feel a very strong orange taste on the palate and a strong orange aftertaste.
A very good value for money for this surprising cognac. Can beat some XOs as well.
Interesting new cognac that could use a better name
Much smoother than I expected, although I had no idea exactly what to expect because of the newness of this brand, serving to the fact that I have never seen nor heard of it before. Because of the awards accolade and the new presence on the market, something rare for cognacs, I decided to try it and was very happy I did. I will be telling our wine shops locally about it if they do not already carry it. Would be even nicer
to get it somewhere locally here in the St. Louis area, in the states, and at price point without all of the expensive cost of shipping one bottle.
About ABK6 Cognac
Owned by Francis Abécassis (a homonym of ABK6 when pronounced in French), ABK6 Cognac is a relatively young brand based in the Domaine de Chez Maillard near the village of Claix. The brand is known for its choice to produce single estate Cognacs, with its eaux-de-vie being carefully selected from their 220 hectares of land, specifically for their aromatic intensity and indulgence. The label has shaken up the industry by introducing a young and modern spirit to a traditional drink, without compromising on quality. The company is now one of the largest independent producers in Cognac, and also owns the brands Leyrat, Reviseur and Grands Domaines. Attention to detail is applied to every single aspect of production at ABK6, with sustainable growing methods, Charentaise distillation and precise blending. It’s no wonder the group has taken home over 60 awards in recent years.
