Courvoisier VSOP Cognac
A delicate bouquet and excellent balance of oak and exotic flavors. This skillfully crafted cognac is a blend of several crus with a perfect balance between Fins Bois, Grande and Petite Champagnes at the peak of their aromatic potential. When the cognac is distilled and aged, it begins to conjure the soft, luscious aroma of ripe peach. After several years in our French fine-grained oak barrels, the spirit develops nutty notes and ages to produce a sweet, caramelized flavor resembling that of toasted almonds. The distillation on the lees is a complex and meticulous process but it gives fruity and musk notes, evoking jasmine aroma.
Deep amber and bright in the glass, look for cedar, vanilla bean and coconut accented by peach and a light violet note. It's light and silky, with a bracing flicker of alcohol heat.
