The youngest Cognac in this blend of 40 different Grande Champagne Cognacs is at least 50 years old. Butter, honey, and dried fruit waft up from the glass. The nearly bite-free palate has complex flavors including dried fruit, honey, coffee, citrus, spices, caramel and toasted oak. The finish lingers, revisiting the flavors again, adding an echo of black tea. Simply stated, this is marvelous. Packaging is gorgeous. Drink and enjoy. Very Highly Recommended. 95 Points.
