Tasting Notes

Tasting review by Bisquit: On the nose: this exalted cognac offers a bouquet of aromas expressed around a core of wood and smoky notes of tobacco and cocoa, and fruity notes of candied fruit and prune.

On the palate: is incredibly rich, full-bodied and stunningly smooth. The notes already expressed on the nose are enriched with aromatic notes of plum, mocha, cedar wood and liquorice. 

Founded by Alexandre Bisquit in 1819, the house of Bisquit, with its home at the Château de Lignères by the banks of the Charente River, had a long-standing family tradition until the house was sold to Pernod Ricard in 1966. Said to have been among the favorite cognacs of Winston Churchill and King George IV, it is popular in the Anglo-Saxon countries and hence was bought by the South African group Distell in 2009. Renault Bisquit Bisquit Dubouche & Co (owned by Distell Group).
