A bottle of the delightful Courvoisier VSOP, from the famous old Cognac house, enjoying a new lease of life in the last decade or so thanks to a new wave of popularity amongst trendy young followers of rap music, hip-hop, and R&B.
|Taste||Whole coffee beans, mint leaves, kumquat, and red grape notes appear at first. Give it a minute and more savoury elements appear, with hints of buttered brown bread and a little whiff of sawdust. More coffee notes as it opens (this would be really good partner to an espresso after a big meal). Develops touches of brown sugar, waxy apple peels, sweet pea, and a fragrant oakiness. Ooh, a nice waft of almost-smoky cinnamon on the finish. Slowly becomes sweeter with fresh pear and gummy bears.|
