Eye: A deep, reddish orange.

Nose: Some spicy hints with the harmony of vanilla; characteristic for its growth area origin.

Palate: A smooth VSOP which unfolds as something quite floral and fruity in the mouth. It is long and mellow.

Description

Courvoisier Exclusif

The Courvoisier VSOP Exclusif is an updated Cognac with a modern twist. It is the Limited Edition of the Courvoisier VSOP that is also recognized as an award winner across the Cognac circuit. This blend is very much in keeping with the Courvoisier mantra, who are constantly looking to bring their legendary brand further into the future. For that reason, it is particularly popular with mixologists who have been using it as a default for long drinks. As a Very Superior Old Pale Cognac, it has been aged for around 12 years. Matured over a longer period than the standard VS, it has been designed by its Cognac master, Patrice Pinet, to blend well with cocktails. The blend itself consists of eaux-de-vie from four of the finest terroirs in the region, including one from the especial Borderies region, and both the Grande and Petite Champagne terroirs. Both of the latter are considered to possess some of the finest in the region. It can only be described as a smooth operator.

The Courvoisier maison is one of the biggest players in the world of Cognac; having ventured from France as the Cognac of the Napoleonic wars, to later caught the attention of its loyalists in the US hip hop genre, it is a Cognac chameleon that is loved world over.

Blind tasted: totally fine VSOP

I tasted this VSOP together with 7 other VSOPs and shared position #1 with with Hardy Organic VSOP.
I pretty much like the nose because it'S rather dry - the finish has a slight punch, but it sort of works within the balance of the blend.

sure, I can say something about it: it's a great cognac blend for mixing with cocktail ingredients, just a bit expensive, compared to a normal VSOP. But hey, cognac age is magic.
