A Grand Champaign VSOP Cognac aged behind three meter thick walls along the River Charente.

The Otard Cognac House has been making premium aged Eaux de Vie along the banks of the Charente River since 1795 when it was founded by Jean-Baptiste Antoine Otard. For generations they have produced fine Cognac under the Château de Cognac, Château Royal, and Baron Otard bands. Baron Otard is now produced for and distributed through the Bacardi Group since their acquisition of Martini & Rossi. The complete line of premium Baron Otard Cognacs is a joy to the senses served in teardrop-shaped bottles.

The cellars at the Château Royal de Cognac are famously three meters thick with very high humidity along the river. This unique aging environment has yielded some of the smoothest Spirits to come our of France. Baron Otard VSOP is made from a minimum of 505 Grand Champaign grapes with the balance being Petite Champaign. Consistent with law and tradition, this VSOP has been aged in those amazing cellars for a minimum of four years in French oak casks, developing a deep, layered flavor profile.

Corner
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.

Matt,
White fruit flavors with sweet honey and caramel notes. Lacks richness and depth. White grapes and honey on the nose.
 
John

Excellent cognac, will buy again.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Bold and rich with underlying notes of zest and pair, not bad for this price.

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
 
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.

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.
