Tasting review

Tasting review:

Eye: Warm mahogany with copper highlights

Nose:  Wild flowers, hawthorn, old port, cigar box

Palate:  A complex harmony of flavors, hints of vanilla, walnuts, haselnuts, dried fruits, dried flowers, subtle port, and rancio.

Deliciously long and satisfying finish.

Description

The Frapin Cigar Blend Vieille Grande Champagne Cognac has been, as the name suggests, created specifically to pair with your favorite cigar.  This XO quality, Grande Champagne Cognac is a single estate reserve, made from eaux-de-vie grown on the Frapin Estate.

It's a powerful yet harmonious Cognac, that delights with the complexity of its flavors.  Think candied apricots, cigar box, and a subtle yet noticable hint of old port.  And of course, as one would expect from a Cognac of this quality, the much desired 'rancio' that only occurs in after many years of aging.  And we have to say, it has a finish that's almost miraculous in terms of length...  All in all, a wonderful Cognac that's perfect for the purpose in which its intended.

One of the best cigar cognacs

If you love a cigar with your cognac, you should try this one: The smell is great, dark flowers, already smells like old leather.. the palate very typcial for grand champagne. Overall: a great cognac for a very, very fair price
