D'Ussé Cognac is a VSOP from the house of Chateau de Cognac, the makers of Baron Otard. Both brands belong to drinks giant Bacardi. Probably only in the US. The bottle looks quite cool: Very tound, a simple cork, no label on the cork... and a gold-double-cross on the front. Very royal, an interesting mix of medieval, bourgeois and somehow a bit rough.
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
Great, smooth cognac but hard to find
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..
NOT BAD, NOT GREAT
I RECENTLY PURCHASED A BOTTLE AT A LIQUOR STORE IN LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA...OF ALL PLACES, NAMED HOKUS POKUS...YOU CAN LAUGH BUT IT IS A GREAT STORE, I WAS VERY SURPRISED...ANYWAY, THIS XO IS NOT BAD AT ALL...I HAVE BEEN ENJOYING IT FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS NOW...TRY IT. I LOVE THE BOTTLE AND THE SYMBOL ON IT AND ON THE BOX, LOOKS KINDA REGAL. I MIGHT GET ANOTHER BOTTLE
