Courvoisier 21 Year Old Cognac – 70cl
Cognac, France- Comprised entirely of the top-tier Grande Champagne. Double distilled and then put through a two-step aging process, first in young French oak barrels and then in reused casks to extract their tannins. Floral notes recede to highlight dried fruit, honey and sandalwood.
Eye: Deep amber.
Nose: The first notes are dried hazelnut, dried apricots and figs, followed by cocoa, honey and tangy spices - white pepper and coriander.
Palate: The aromatics soften into candied orange and gingerbread, leading to a voluptuous finish reminiscent of leather armchairs and a fine cigar.
