A wonderful, approachable, award-winning example of Hardy’s Cognac heritage and expertise.

Back in the mid 1800s, Anthony Hardy — an Englishman — fell in love with northern France and Cognac. After decades of flirting with the region as an importer of Cognac into England, he eventually moved there, changed his name from Anthony to Antoine, and opened up his own Cognac distillation house (a “Maison”). Hey… follow your passions, right? Today, Maison Hardy produces a few lovely Pineaus and a wide range of Cognacs from the middle price points all the way up to some truly fantastic artistic expressions arrayed in fine crystal decanters.

Hardy Legend 1863 is named for the year in which the Hardy Distillery was founded. It’s a lovely blend of Hardy Cognacs made from 100% Ugni Blanc grapes raised in limestone soils within three of the seven producing districts — Petits Champaign, Fins Bois, and Borderies. The Spirit is aged in lightly-toasted Limousin oak barrels from two to twelve years. It is a wonderful, approachable, award-winning example of Hardy’s expertise and we would have a dram whenever there is a bottle open to pour.

Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.

Tasty, a little heavy on the prune flavor for my liking. But solid as a sipper!

Sorry! Mixed my reviews. Same rating and really tasty. Forget the prunes, it’s more woody and coffee. Chocolate flavors and very smooth!

Dr.,
WOW! First off, the nose is comparable to a 20 year old tawny port. This iteration of Hardy Cognac is a testament to their commitment to process and their own tradition. Cannot rate it high enough. I have yet to drink it in a sidecar. I will update once I mix it.

I normally don’t drink cognac, but this one might sway me to the dark side. Strong but not overpowering coffee with cream notes and a light citrusy jam flavor were delightful

Antti,
It is an outstanding, elegant, 'Brandy from Cognac, France that has a delicate & floral birth; while an elegant life leads to an off-dry death of medium length.
