— very smooth, and has a nice little sweet ending. i think it was my favorite of the taster and i bought a bottle.

— I liked this one: just a bit sweet. Smooth. Decided to buy a Bottle.!

— It's been a while since I had cognac - I'm usually a whiskey guy. From first sniff to final swallow I loved it. I found a lot more grape and elderflower than the flavor spiral indicated, which wasn't a bad thing.

Robert,
Smooth, flavorful, complex, and enjoyable. Great to sip and relax after a day at the beach or eating fancy meats and cheese.
 
Trevour
Trevour,
Nice balance and complexity but too much like a grappa to be a good cognac

Sweet and smooth. My favorite of the Cognac taster box.
 
Joe
Joe,
Starts with strong orange and toffee notes with vanilla in middle with sweet fruity finish. Yum
 
Ashley
Ashley,
Alcohol forward on the nose. I get a stronger grape note than its flavor spiral suggests. My least favorite of the cognac taster, but it isn’t bad by any means.
 
Marguerite

Very orange and sweet, with a fruit filled finish

Every sip transports me back to a delightful week in Cognac 15 years ago.
 
Chris
Chris,
Not very smooth, alcohol was prominent with other flavors taking a back seat.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Can definitely smell the floral notes. the taste is very fruity and pleasant. This is my first cognac and it's unlike any spirit I've tried, very satisfying.

It had a light taste, but it lingered with the aftertaste.
 
David
David,
Light, sweet like a white wine. Very dessert like......could be good in small amounts.
 
Robert
Robert,
I really like this one. Lots of flavor. Sweet but not syrupy. Complex and smooth. A little spicy on the finish.
 
Josh
Josh,
Pear and honey on the nose, very light and fruity. I pick up more of the elderflower and orange blossom with a very smooth finish. Best of the tasting box
 
Heather
Heather,
Much to florally for my liking.
 
Sumner
Sumner,
Buying another bottle. Very smooth on the rocks. Did the taste test and this was the best one.

Wilkingson,
Great
 
Jamie
Jamie,
This was outstanding. As a bourbon drinker I wanted something different but not all together crazy different. This one wasn’t too sweet or rancid. I appreciate the vanilla and pear.
 
Bob
Bob,
Very smooth sip with a strongly balanced finish. Favorite taste yet!
 
Daniel
Daniel,
This was a smooth and warm experience. I liked the honey notes in this. The finish was pure warmth with the fruity notes lingering.
 
Robert
Robert,
At the first swallow there is a slight burn and hotness. Otherwise a mild spirit and light yellow color with smoothness with multiple subtle flavors at the finish. Quit good for the price. A cigar with it is my next test, let you know.
 
Ray
Ray,
Hot and spicy honey raisin. Not as smooth as I would have liked.
 
Tor
Tor,
Wow! What a beauty. Not similar to a traditional Remy or Hennessy, very light and smooth. Lighter in color than your typical Cognac. Honey and Pear... flowers, amazing, especially for $61!
 
James
James,
had strength of character and sits at the spirit end (rather than wine end) of cognac spectrum; appeals to the whiskey lover more than the wine lover
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Very smooth and interesting taste. Of the brandy and cognac I’ve tasted I like this the best.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
I want more! This sweet and flavorful VSOP was very drinkable. Honey and elderflower hit me much more than toffee. Almost like a sweet low burn bourbon this smelled and tasted great neat, or with a touch of clean room temp water.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Strong bite with little flavor, not smooth at all. Inhospitable nose to it.
 
Michael
Michael,
Delicate and refined
 
Denver
Denver,
Very smooth and a nice finish
 
Kaelin
Kaelin,
Strong flavor and the fruit/pear comes through in the end, overall really smooth and well balanced.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Smooth for a VSOP with a sweet herbal taste on the back end. I couldn't pick up the toffee as the flavor spiral suggests.
 
Candice
Candice,
Definitely a gentler vsop, but a super drinkable, smooth, enjoyable sip.
 
John
John,
Good smooth all the way. Nice early notes.
 
Bernadette
Bernadette,
Strong bite with sweet honey undertones. Delicious!
 
Amanda
Amanda,
It is an okay supper, but I enjoyed it more as an old fashioned. It brought out the best of the flavors.
 
Chase
Chase,
Nose: Extremely floral with peach and raspberry Palate: Chamomile, fruit, and almond Finish: Cream! Absolutely worth the price
 
Emily
Emily,
Very good, orange flavor, not my favorite cognac but still very good.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very nice, smooth and a reasonable entry into the world of cognac.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, elegant, 'estate-bottled Brandy from Cognac, France that has an aromatic birth; while a delicate & balanced life leads to a rich death of medium length with notes of almond, honey & caramel.
 
Angela
Angela,
Right amount of orange/fruit flavor, a bit of sweetness, and smoother with ice
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Nice orange flavor with smooth finish.
