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 flavor profile at least an average of 8 years old.

Mat
Mat,
The best value from the tasting set and a real sweet spot between quality and price. Peach, baked apple, vanilla and some richer baking spices on the nose. Fruity palate with oak notes and a nice earthy character adding another layer of Complexity. Really good and really smooth, I’d definitely go for a bottle of this.

Craig
Craig,
Not a cognac drinker, but wanted to give it a try so got the "Le Cognac" tasting box. I found this one smoother than the Merlot VS, but my wife found that it had more of a sharp bite on the tongue. Still smooth going down. I preferred this one out of the 3 in the box.
 
John
John,
This is right up my street! not too harsh on the pallet, well balanced with a hint of fruit and vanilla. Would definitely recommend!
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, balanced, VSOP Cognac that has an aromatic birth; while an elegant life leads to a balanced death of medium length.
 
Alexandria
Alexandria,
Not the smoothest brandy I have in the home bar but a totally brag-worthy one none the less! Strong on the tobacco, oaky, with subtle fruit and vanilla hints. A little too smoky for me at times as I prefer a deeper toffee, caramel usually associated with a Spanish brandy but it is a wonderful accompaniment to a rich roast after dinner coffee.

Nothing special but not bad either. Compared to others it tastes a little bland and leaves something to be desired after the sip.
 
Bruce
Bruce,
Tastes like a fruity scotch. A little disjointed in its flavor profile but I wouldn’t turn it down.

Troy
Troy,
Fresh tobacco and fruit notes on the nose. Nicely rounded with oak and earth flavors. A pleasing finish. A dry but cleansing linger. Nice.
 
Susanna
Susanna,
This was indeed a good cognac. I truly recommend this.
 
Ron
Ron,
Great fruit aromas like light nectarine on the nose. Taste adds tobacco and oak. Complex but not as balanced or as smooth as the Louis Royer XO that was also in the tasting kit.

arne
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
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
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.
 
Dave
Dave,
I love the fruitiness

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