Conjure Cognac – VS

10 February 2010 8 Comments

Rapper Ludacris has since last year his “own” Cognac label, which is made by the respected 122 years old cognac house: Birkedal Hartmann.

The music legend (Chris Bridges) was actively involved in every step of the development of the cognac and the design of the bottle.

Although Ludacris describes this Cognac as a gentle and soft Cognac, I find this a fairly sharp Cognac. The smell is very fruity and reminiscent of apple juice.

This Cognac is sold as VS, you find the edge that a lot of young eaux-de-vie is through. However, this Cognac is made from a blend of Cognacs from 2 to 50 years old.

The sharpness and strong flavor, makes this Cognac ideal for mixing with Cognac.

The bottle of this Cognac is superb. At first glance, you don’t see anything special, but if you look closely, you see all women….

Conjure, is in my opinion a mix of contemporary American hip-hop culture and a timeless French tradition.

The tasting notes of the Conjure VS Cognac are.:

The color: dark copper. (caramel color)
The fragrance: wood, fruit reminiscent of apple juice and a slight alcohol odor.
The taste: Here again an apple-like flavor, smoky wood, sugar, warm and quite sharp.
The after-taste: the sharpness is the hot flavor reasonably long hanging.
The origin: in any case: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Borderies. Probably Fins Bois.
Age: 2 to 50 years aged in oak barrels. Good for the title VS Cognac.
The price: about $ 34.
The price / quality ratio: a 7.5. This Cognac is fairly sharp and the taste of apple juice is not attractive. Good for mixing with Cognac. Stunning bottle.
