The Poe Toaster used to pay an annual tribute to Edgar Allan Poe by leaving the unfinished bottle of Martell on his grave for over seven decades.

Jean Martell founded the Martell house in 1715 on the boards of the Cherente river. It is the oldest of the “big four” and one that is distinct for using grapes from the Borderies crus of the Cognac region. This gives their cognac a characteristic smooth, and nutty taste, which is Martell's signature. It is usually matured in Tronçais oak, resulting in a less wooden aroma and leaving the cognac more pure and neutral.

Martell VSOP average age is 10 to 12 years and is a mix of blended, mature eaux-de-vie from the four finest growths of the region.

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