IWSC - Six of the World's Best Cognacs

Best Cognacs"There can be few spirits with such an illustrious pedigree and premium connotations as Cognac."  Following the last International Wine and Spirit's Competition (IWSC) a list of the world's six best cognacs was compiled.  How very pleasing it was to read that our Hermitage 2008 Grande Champagne Cognac was listed as one of them.  We have always known that this is a very special cognac.  Relatively youthful for one from the premier cru, it is just 10 years old, single-cask, single-estate and very expensive, but it is also one in a million.  The IWSC described it as "Fresh and powerful with a wealth of flavours delivered through a very expressive and complex set of aromas on the palate. Luscious leather, ginger and rancio notes are boldly evident and intricately balanced with cherry stones and warming spice."  Being single-cask, availability is diminishing fast so if you would like to taste it for yourself, don't hang about.  If you are interested in finding out more about single-cask cognacs take a look at our latest Technical Topic here.
