Martell

Martell is a manufacturer of cognac, founded by Jean Martell in 1715.

The cellar master was, up to the 1980s, from the Chapeau family (in the way that the cellar masters of Hennessy are from the Fillioux family ).

Much of Martell Cognac is produced from wine from the Borderies region, in contrast to other companies, which mainly sell fine Champagne Cognac. Borderies Cognac has a more nutty taste.

Cohiba Extra Cognac from Martell

Cigar Cognacs are great Cognacs to pair with Cigars, especially the heavier ones from Cuba,  these Cognacs are somewhat spicier and stronger in taste, so they do not disappear in terms of taste when paired with a heavy aromatic cigar.
Cohiba was back in 1999 one of the first, with the idea to make a special cigar spirit. They collaborate for some time with Bisquit, but after Bisquit was bought by Martell, it decided to bring the Bisquit Cohiba under the Martell label.
