The Otard family traces its origins back to the middle of the 9th century to a Norwegian Viking named Ottar.

Otard Cognac house, also known as Chateau de Cognac, was founded in 1795. This little Chateau was also the birthplace of King Francois 1 of France.

The royal Chateau of Cognac was bought by Baron Otard in 1795 for its unique ageing conditions. Situated on the same level as the river Charente, the relative humidity reaches 90%. The walls are 3 meters thick enabling the temperature to remain constant at 15°C throughout the year.

The eaux-de-vie used for this blend come from the Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. Age is unclear, but based on its flavour profile at least an average of 8 years old.

The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin, but excellent for distillation and aging.

arne,
this left me unimpressed. the pear is interesting but I’m not one for fruity cognacs. the tobacco doesn’t do much for me either, and overall this cognac falls a little flat throughout. didn’t like the smell of it either

Andrej,
I like the tobbaco here and then firther complexity.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
The taiste notes are accurate a very smoky taste to it . The finish is not bad, this is one where you do not desire a fruity finish . It drinks more like a medium dry Pinot noir for comparison

Matthew,
Definite oak and smooth intake. Very nice
 
Alex
Alex,
Cognacs are normally not my first choice, but this one has a great earthy/oaky, slightly smokey flavor to it - if you like peaty scotches and are trying to branch into cognacs, this is an excellent choice.

Hints of fruit, slightly with a delicate balance. Very nice sipping cognac.

Nicki,
This is the second cognac that I have tried. Very similar to the Merlet. I think I need to try on its own, not at a tasting.

Scott,
This is really, really good. Lots of vanilla up front. I have been drinking a lot of port wine lately and this reminds me a bit of that experience - this is great finish to a night of dining.
