Duquai VSOP Cognac delights on all counts. From the bright golden to mid ochre color, to the flower and oak aromas, right through to the smoothness of chocolate and vanilla on the palate - it's a winner all round. A wonderful cognac to drink as an aperitif, or perhaps to linger over at the end of a fine meal. A great introduction to this artisan house and its small, but top quality, range of cognacs...
A funny Cognac, but good
I tasted this VSOP against 7 other VSOPs in a blind tasting. Well, I say funny because the nose is a bit weak I think, but then the palate is great! Then again the finish is smooth and nice - complex but not sharp. Very good value vor money!
