Meukow VS – 90 Proof
To my knowledge this is one of the only VS quality Cognacs sold with such high alcohol content.
There are some very old vat-strength Cognacs and of course one of my favorites Cognacs the Daniel Bouju Royal 60% with an higher alcohol content.
The packaging of this cognac is black made of a plastic with a soft touch. Nice is also the transparent leopard.
This cognac is a real VS qualtiy, quite sharp and less refined.
The tasting notes of Meukow 90 Proof are:
The color: golden, darker than the average VS cognac.
The fragrance: rich aromas of dried fruits, the higher alcohol content is immediately noticeable.
The taste: a old woody flavor, which is not often recognizable with a VS quality Cognac..
The after-taste: a long strong taste in the mouth.
The price / quality ratio: a 6.5.
Proof is a measure of the amount of ethanol (ethyl alcohol) in an alcoholic beverage, and is about twice the alcohol content. This measure is widely used in the United States.
