IWSC 2021 - Excellent Results for Hermitage Cognacs

IWSC 2021Hot off the press, we are delighted to share with you our results from the International Wines & Spirits Competition - IWSC 2021.

GOLD OUTSTANDING Medal was awarded to:

Hermitage 50 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac and the judges commented "Like opening an old leather-bound book or antique oak armoire.  Figgy pudding and rich dark chocolate; wonderful rich spices and the bitterness of orange zest come through on the palate. Spicy but gentle and supremely dry."

And GOLD Medals were awarded to:

Hermitage 1952 Grande Champagne Cognac  "With heavy, rum-like caramel and treacle aromas, this cognac has a big palate offering flavours of peach melba, butterscotch and creamy coffee. The quality and intensity of fruit is simply excellent."

Hermitage 1955 Grande Champagne Cognac  "Forest floor, freshly cut grass and citrusy notes on the nose. A silky palate of orchard florals, lemon rind and a final hint of rose jelly to finish. Wonderfully complex and hugely commendable."

Hermitage Paradis 1890 Grande Champagne Cognac  "A tropical note behind the oaky, polished wood and roasted coffee aromas. Black tea on the palate is balanced with spice and creamy caramel. Dry, nuanced, refined and elegant."
