Tasting review

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.

Great Cognac for a VSOP! Great value for the price.

This is a very pleasant surprise--a VSOP with an excellent, long finish. This Cognac isn't terribly complex, but has a lovely nose in which I detect a nuttiness and trace of dried fruits. On the palate, it hits me nicely with traces of either almonds or hazelnuts, with a vanilla and caramel undertone. The finish is very long--around 5 minutes, and is principally the suggestion of vanilla, caramel, hazelnut and some oakiness. Finish is the strong point of this Cognac.

the best cognac I know

Nose is full of grape but also dry, very sweet on the palate - not agressive at all. And the finish is super smooth for what this cognac is, a vsop.


About Camus Cognac

Since 1863, five generations of the CAMUS family have cultivated a single-minded passion for crafting great Cognac with their own style. With 180 hectares in the smallest and rarest AOC cru - Borderies - renowned for producing eaux-de-vie with an intense floral bouquet and excellent ageing qualities - the Camus family has always been deeply involved in winemaking and distilling. It is this unbreakable bond between the land, the traditions and the men who live on it, that helps craft superb Cognacs. In 2000, the House premiered with the first ever 100% Borderies XO Cognac. A solid success, it was to become the Camus signature Cognac, offering an outstanding combination of violet and vanilla spice aromas of intense velvety smoothness.

Camus Elegance range is a bold illustration of CAMUS’ Living Tradition with Cognacs that truly respect the original character of the eaux-de-vie and are remarkable for the finesse of their blends. In its ongoing search to explore the diverse regions of the Cognac appellation, CAMUS became the first Cognac House to capture the unique marine notes of the Ile de Ré vineyards. Raised and aged on the island, Camus Ile de Ré Cognacs typically offer fresh iodine notes with hints of dried fruit with archetypal mellow softness. Produced in limited quantities, they offer a rich and unique taste experience. Camus also proposes a Masterpiece collection of rare, limited cuvées, each consisting of a unique, exceptional blend presented in spectacular cases as well as Rarissimes vintages of most extraordinary Cognacs - certified under bailiff’s supervision and bottled without reduction, allowing them to express the full strength of their aroma and character.

@Carlos: why don't you use the "Submit a Bottle" function here on the page, see bottom or top of page. I used this and it's pretty great. On another note: I really wonder Camus still sells this bottle. Don't like the design at all, doesn't really make me want to taste it. But I did! This cognac is a normal VSOP, not outstanding. A bit expensive for what it is.

I have a bottle of VSOP COGNAC CAMUS GRAND, but the bottle is a bit different from the one shown in this photo, is that it is an older version? The bottle a tax stamp, that the production was in France and also has a cross engraved..
