Martell Cordon Bleu VSOP
The Martell Cognac house was producing fine cognac in France during the times when America was still under colonial rule. It has been producing elite blends of cognac for over 300 years, and it is still one of the top brands on the market. It got its start in 1715, which was a time of great creativity and passion in one's craft in France. This attitude spilled into every batch of Martell cognac, and it is a quality still found in every blend today. One of the best blends Martell has to offer is their Cordon Bleu VSOP. This fine blend was created in 1912 and has since catapulted to legendary status among cognac enthusiasts. It has a sweet taste that has hints of gingerbread and cocoa beans, with a caramel color reminiscent of a dark rum. The subtle sweetness makes it a great choice for first-time cognac drinkers.
