Camus Ile de Ré – Fine Island Cognac

Probably one of the most eccentric Cognacs available, the Ile de Ré line of Camus Cognac.
The Ile de Ré line is so special because the grapes of the Cognacs are not from the mainland of the Cognac Region but from a small Island which is also part of the Cognac Appellation.

Hennessy VS Cognac – 2010 Limited Edition Bottling to benefit National Urban League

In my search over the internet to find interesting items for you, I found a interesting Limited Edition of Hennessy, which was not been written about on Cognac Fans.
The unique design of this 2010 LE combines the iconic shape of the V.S bottle with the graphical elements of the original 1865 label of Trois Etoiles (Three Stars) Cognac-the name under which V.S was first known.

Remy Martin Grand Cru – Petite Champagne VS Cognac

Although I’m crazy for the Remy Martin VSOP, I am somewhat less enthusiastic about the Remy Martin VS Cognac.
This VS-quality Cognac is simply just very sharp in the mouth. Much sharper than its competitors from Martell and Courvoisier.
This Remy Martin is a genuine VS Cognac, sharp and not to complex, a typical Cognac made for mixing…

Meukow VS

Presented in a unique bottle decorated with a black panther, the Meukow VS is one of the most beautiful VS-bottles on the market!
Meukow VS Cognac offers much higher distinctive tasting qualities than the average VS.  Lots of tones of vanilla flavor due to the aging in oak barrels are noticeable.
This VS-Cognac is a lot softer in taste compared to the 90-proof Meukow VS that I described earlier on CognacFans.

Pierre Ferrand Ambre

I think I have a new favorite for the affordable Cognac, thats the Pierre Ferrand Ambre. This is a 100% Grande Champagne Cognac and aged on average 10 years. Unbelievable for the lowest in the range of a brand like Pierre Ferrand.
The price? Here at the wholesale this Cognac costs about 24 euros including VAT. At other off-licenses, this Cognac is almost always below 30 euros. Very well affordable!

Frapin VS – Grande Champagne Cognac

The Frapin VS is a perfect VS cognac, probably to good for the VS-quality! It’s refined, balanced, full flavored and wonderfully aromatic. This cognac has one problem: the price! 35 euros is a lot of money for a VS cognac, buying a nice Menard VSOP Grande Champagne cognac, and stick a tenner in the pocket for a good cigar looks to be a better deal.

Meukow VS – 90 Proof

This Meukow 90 proof cognac contains an higher alcohol content than most of the well-known cognacs. 5 percent/10 proof more!
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.
