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.
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.
