Character Goatson
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.

Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
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.
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
