Tasting review

Eye: A rich, brooding amber that catches the light with golden shimmers.

Nose: Powerful bouquet, rich in woody notes, layered with touches of cinnamon and floral notes.

Palate: Distinctly and unexpectedly smooth, with each taste, you savor hints of spices, almond and cinnamon. Subtle hints of honey and dried fruits in the finale.

Description

The famous Jay Z Cognac liquor in a Cross of Lorraine decanter

Dusse is the epitome of contemporary and tradition coming together in a cutting edge way. The uber-trendy Dusse VSOP Cognac is the first of the Dusse line, and Master Blender Michel Casavecchia weaves his magic by selecting only the finest eaux-de-vie aged for at least 4 and a half years in the dark cellars of the iconic Chateau de Cognac in France, which is also home to the historic Baron Otard producers.

A full bodied, warming blend that refreshes and arouses the palate, in a symbolic decanter that is the perfect collector’s item. Distinctively smooth.

The Dusse VSOP Decanter

The two-barred cross decanter is both cutting edge and wonderfully rustic. With a simple cork and no label on the cork... it is somewhat regal; an interesting mix of medieval, bourgeois and somehow a bit rough. The bottle is dome-shaped, with a coppery gold metallic Cross of Lorraine etched into it.

The design gives an indication of the extensive history of Cognac blending knowledge at Dusse, and the design is a subtle nod towards the forward-thinking element of the brand. Bottled at 40% ABV.

How to serve the Dusse VSOP

Inviting cocktail recipes that go perfectly with the Dussé VSOP include pineapple and amaretto over ice, with lemonade or with a red martini and walnut bitters. It also drinks beautifully from a snifter neat or over ice.

Dusse vsop,my first experience.

The nose has a flowery hint with perhaps almonds.Sweet and carries through to the finish.The palate is excellent,nothing overpowering with the nose caring through.
Aftertaste; nothing,very clean,excellent balance,top shelf! Very smooth well worth the price

It was the bottle that caught my fascination. 5/5 for the design with the beautiful rounded shape and the croix de Lorraine on it in metal. It's so rustique and elegant at the same time. I was pleasantly surprises by the cognac itself, though. It has a rounded, but slightly fiery and complex taste, after a slightly careful opening up. I really like it al ot, and will probably try to hunt another bottle down. It is very difficult to get hold on in Europe, wonder why. Good you have it here at Cognac expert, but the shipping fee is a bit pricey at 20 euros to Denmark..

About Dusse Cognac

Created just shy of five years ago, D’USSÉ Cognac may seem young, but everything about them exudes age-old tradition and regional history. Crafted at one of the oldest Cognac houses in France, the Château de Cognac, it makes for stunning eaux-de-vie that quite literally soak up the atmosphere of where they are located. Cellar Master Michel Cassavecchia has been curating Cognac for over two decades, and their range now consists of the D’USSÉ XO and the D’USSÉ VSOP. They have certainly been in the limelight for the past couple of years thanks to a collaboration with US rapper and hip hop mogul, Jay-Z.

Q&A

Ken Saveth 2012-09-05

Oh well. Some things are worth the wait (I hope).

Max at Cognac-Expert 2012-09-05

Hi Ken, everyone. We tasted D'Ussé last week at the Chateau de Cognac, in Cognac (of course).. and we were told that D'Usse is right now only available in NYC, and will probably make its way down the east coast first.. then a roll out later in other states where you then can buy D'Usse VSOP. Oklahoma must wait I am afraid..

Ken 2012-09-05

Dear Cognac Expert; I live in Oklahoma & many liquors are difficult if not impossible to find here. Many times they can be found in surrounding states such as Arkansas, Missouri or Texas. Are you aware of WHERE I can pick up a bottle of D-Usse VSOP Cognac anywhere near Tulsa, Oklahoma?

serge 2012-06-14

WHERE I CAN BUY IN NJ__?

Erik 2012-05-11

Where can I purchase Dusse cognac? If it's good for Jay-Z, it's good for me! Thanks for letting me know, would like to buy two bottles, California.

Marc 2012-05-10

This looks great! I love that cognac Dusse.. it looks like it comes directly out of the cellar of a french castle. Knights and so... so want to try it! When does it come (back) to Europe, and where can I buy Dusse in the US?

Floyd 2012-05-09
