Tasting Notes by Boogieman Import:

Colour: Brilliant amber.

Nose: Delicate aromas of dried fruit (dates and figs). Cigar box, mild tobacco, on the background some licorice and nuttiness (walnut and almond). Pleasingly complex, finely balanced with a good deal of 'rancio'.

Palate: Generous, rich and powerful. Some cedarwood, touches of old oak and fruity notes like blackcurrants and raisins. The last wave gives us slightly herbal tea and delicate tannins. Very rounded and tasty.

Finish: Excellent length with a light leathery edge. Warm oak spice towards the end.

Tasting notes by Serge Valentin ( 91 points

A wonderful old house where they do it like when it was best. There are spirits that you cannot improve, any 'innovations' consisting in dumbing it all down. So, these days, innovation = no change. Right. Discuss if you like. Yeah, the labels are sh***y, so what? It's about substance, not about bl***y 'design'.

Colour: amber.

Nose: oh, old precious woods (rose, thuja), incense, blood oranges, Timut pepper, pink grapefruits, Turkish delights, macaroons, wee whiffs of thyme and rosemary, potpourri, chartreuse, bits of nougat… Ho ho ho! With water: a old lady's mink coat and various old-school perfumes. Roses, Joy de Patou, musk… Stuff like that.

Mouth (neat): just wowowow, once you get through the oaky barrage in the arrival. Litchis and roses, muscat, gewurz, pink grapefruits once again, tonic, drops of Campari, Szechuan pepper again and again, fermented tea, pu-ehr, raw cocoa pods, dried strawberries (ever tried that?)… Wat a whirlwind! With water: blood oranges in majesty. A little mint too.

Finish: medium, floral, superb. Wine freaks special: think high-class viognier.

Comments: a Jimi-Hendrix of Cognac. 1967, you known, flower power. I believe this style of masterful old Cognac really is for malt enthusiasts – but I know I'm being a little parochial here. Keywords, old roses and pink grapefruits. Well done, clan!
