Courvoisier Cognac VSOP
Elegance in a bottle might best describe Courvoisier Cognac VSOP, since drinking it allows an individual the opportunity to experience the sheer craftsmanship that went into each bottle. That includes an aging process that took close roughly a decade to achieve the true taste required to make this an elite consideration. While this is an offering for discerning tastes, there's likely no one who will argue with this being in the upper echelon of cognacs. That includes the judges at a variety of Spirits competitions over the years. The aromas that first converge are ones like peach, toasted almond or jasmine. In other words, sweet and nutty, but without additional enhancements that might mar the overall appeal as well as the exacting balance that's been achieved. From there, a sweet thickness with a fruit base reaches the palate, while aspects of vanilla help lead it to a very warm finish.
