Tasting review

The cognac reveals some wood notes, a hint of sweetness. Some fresh notes, fruity and a slight rancio note. On the palate: Quite round, complex and dry fruit. A solid length for what it is.

Mr

A fair tasting cognac that is ok to the taste, but, in my opinion, needs more nose, a little more fruit, a little more complexity. Maybe Cognac is not supposed to be like that, but, in my estimation, it should be. I haven't tried a great deal of cognacs, but for the price and prestige of this thing, it should be fairly overwhelming, and this is not. I will keep tasting until I find something that is, and then I'll report on it, but this Marteell VSOP, as a drink, is only okay. There are many other alcoholic beverages that have a deeper flavor, are more complex,, and have a richer bouquet than this has, It's certainly not bad, but as a drink, it's just ok.


About Martell Cognac

Martell is the oldest of the Big Four Cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, not long ago did Martell celebrate its 300-year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715 when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in Cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, the cuvée Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market, and are famous for using large amounts of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terroir. It belongs to Pernod Ricard and has sales of around 15 million liters every year. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell - approximately 1.6 million 9-liter cases!
