Tasting review by Landy Cognac:
An intense mahogany color that bears witness to the long aging in oak.
Initially light on the nose with elegant note of honey and dried flowers, The opening is more complex flavors of sandalwood, plum, liquorice. and candied fruit. The finish is supple and spicy with great depth.
Cognac Landy is part of the larger company Cognac Ferrand. This relatively new house, which was established in 1989, was a collaboration between Alexandre Gabriel and a traditional wine growing family in the Charente. Thus, Cognac Ferrand, and therefore Cognac Landy too, was created with the philosophy of bringing new life back into the industry and production of cognac. Because of this, Cognac Landy is produced in the age old fashion without utilizing mass production techniques.
