Single batch Cognac in a limited edition
The Comandon VSOP Cognac is one that’s an excellent example of how very good a Cognac of this age quality can be. The average age of the eau-de-vie that makes up the blend far exceeds the legal minimum, and this is truly apparent in the sublime taste experience it offers. It’s an award winning Cognac made from wine from the Fins Bois terroir. Not to mention that it’s a single batch creation, meaning that it really is a case of, ‘once it’s gone, it’s gone’. Each of the eau-de-vie within the blend has been aged between 8-12 years, in red Limousin oak casks. The end result is an extremely superior VSOP that offers outstanding value for money.
Comandon Cognac is truly an independent house. Everything to do with their creations is carried out in-house. So you can be sure that when you purchase one of their Cognacs that you’re experiencing not only a quality liquor, but one that’s been created with the passion and intimacy that only such an artisan house can offer.
This Cognac is created in a limited edition, and each one is individually numbered. Typically there are only around 3,000 bottles produced, with the choice of eau-de-vie used presenting a very distinct taste profile. It’s a very versatile spirit, and can be enjoyed in many ways. It’s definitely worth experiencing neat, thanks to the complex taste profile and wonderfully long after taste. But it can also be well used as a luxurious addition to your favorite cocktail, or with a mixer of your choice to make a refreshing long drink—perfect for a warm day.
It should come as no surprise that a Cognac of this quality has gained multiple industry awards. These include:
- A double Gold medal at the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco.
- High score of 91 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
In short, this is an outstanding VSOP quality Cognac, and a true testimony to how great the products from Comandon really are.
About Comandon Cognac
Comandon is an independent Cognac house that continue to control all of their production in-house. Their philosophy lies in uniting traditional elegance and two centuries of savoir-faire with modernity and pushing the boundaries, which can be seen in their bespoke branding campaigns and unique internet presence. Think La Dolce Vita meets Armani.
With an extremely forward-thinking marketing agenda and a particularly hands-on approach when it comes to the music and entertainment industry, Comandon have carved themselves an interesting space for a niche approach to the Cognac business.
They do an exceptional job of producing small, artisanal batches that offer rare and limited glimpses into one particular terroir, or one exceptional harvest, whether the eaux-de-vie are younger or older. For this reason, they defy tradition in the Cognac world, who believe that “older is better” and producing the same Cognac year in, year out is the end objective. Comandon instead work in tandem with nature, initiating unique collaborations for their single cask collection, and never fearing experimentation.
With a history dating back around 200 years, the Cognac house continue to produce excellent Cognac and receive top-notch awards.
