Davidoff VSOP – Cognac Review

The Davidoff VSOP is being made by Thomas Hine for Davidoff, known for their superb cigars. This Cognac should match great with these cigars.
In the past Davidoff was being made under licence by Hennessy, two years ago Davidoff decided to change to Hine. Known for their great quality Cognacs.

François Voyer XO Grand Cru

A few years ago I described the François Voyer XO Gold as one of the best XO Cognacs. This XO Grand Cru is the slightly younger, about 5 years, brother of this XO Gold.
The name of Grand Cru revers to the Grande Champagne, Voyer uses for all of their Cognacs, as Grande Champagne is the Grand Cru of the Cognac region.
The decanter is a beauty, which suits very well in your drinking cabinet…

Hennessy VSOP

Because the Hennessy VSOP isn’t being sold in the European Union I combined my trip to the Cognac-area with a visit to the Hennessy store where I bought the Hennessy VSOP but also a Pure White, KAWS VS and a Black.
The Hennessy VSOP is the first to review! Compared to the Hennessy Fine de Cognac (the European Hennessy between the VS and the XO quality) it is much darker in color, but this has mostly to do with the aging.

Comandon Single Barrel Borderies

In February we already had a news item about the Comandon Single Barrel Collection, a collection of 3 Single Barrel Cognacs coming from the Grande Champagne (40 years old), Petite Champagne (30 years old) and Borderies (18 years old). They are all bottled at cask strength.
Luckily I had the opportunity to taste the Comandon Single Barrel Borderies, which has a cask strength of 45%. In fact, this is very exciting as this is the first review ever made of a Single Barrel Cognac, a category of product much more common in the Scotch/Whiskies …

Hine Antique XO Fine Champagne – Cognac Review

Yesterday I bought some Hine Antique bottles for Cognac Tastings I regulary give in the Netherlands, strange enough I hadn’t reviewed this Cognac before so here it is!
The Hine Antique XO Fine Champagne is made from Grande and Petite Champagne spirits with at least 50% of Grande Champagne and contains more than 40 cognacs aged for more than one generation. This Cognac is replaced by a new Hine Antique XO made from 100% Grande Champagne Cognacs in 2010.

Fourcade VSOP – Bons Bois Cognac Review

Some months ago I was in Antwerp, Belgium, and bought in a Cognac-Shop called “de Cognatheek” an Bons Bois Cognac, because I wanted buy a 100% Bon Bois Cognac.
These Bons Bois Cognacs are extremely difficult to get outside the Cognac Region. Many producers are using Bons Bois (i.e. Hennessy), but they never use it for 100% in their Cognac.

De Luze VS – Cognac Review

The De Luze VS is a real VS Cognac, you taste and smell it is less complex than the acclaimed Alfred De Luze with 43% alcohol. The taste burns a little more, despite the 3% less alcohol.
Yet this De Luze is a very pleasant VS Cognac. The taste is in fact very comfortable with a general flavor which I also observed in the Alfred De Luze and De Luze VSOP. Well done so!
