Fruity and chic Cognac celebrating brotherhood.

Every part of the world has its own "water of life." For Scotland and Kentucky it's Whisky; for Russia it's Vodka; for Mad Max Australia, it's gasoline. But ask any French person and they'll tell you it's either Wine or Cognac. The Merlet & Fils Distillery from Saint-Sauvant in the Cognac region has been making Cognacs since 1850, when USA had only 30 states. In 1973, Gilles Merlet took over the distillery and his sons are the fifth generation distilling astounding Spirits. In 2010, after 160 years distilling for large Cognac houses, Merlet developed their own Cognac and since then, created numerous blockbusters. In addition to that, the distillery organizes its own cocktail competition in almost twenty countries.

The French are known for their cries for fraternity, but in this bottle’s case, it’s a celebration of actual brotherhood. Gilles Merlet and his sons Pierre and Luc created this blend as a new expression for the new generation. They took four Cognacs from Fins Bois crus and one from Grande Champagne, aged it for at least four years, and created a glamorous union of different ages, a unique release where the youngest Cognacs bring power and energy, and the oldest bring maturity and complexity. Merlet Brothers Blend's perfect fruit aromas are accompanied by floral flavors, making this delightful potion very easy to sip, and excellent in cocktails (Sidecar or Orchard & Vine, for instance). The harmonic union of the ingredients exemplify the philosophy behind this endeavor. People at San Francisco World Spirits Competition agree, as they gave this bottle a golden medal in 2016.

Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor 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.

James,
This was a shock to be so smooth and balanced. I gave my wife a blind test with another Cognac and she picked this one. I will buy it again for sure. Great buy!

Stephanie,
I’m going to give this a 10 because we really liked it. I usually have to mix my liquor with something and I really enjoyed sipping this straight. Nice flavors.

Daniel,
I’m more of a whiskey drinker, and have had very few experiences with cognac. So I don’t have many others to compare this one with. However, as a whiskey drinker, I found this to be very nice. Flaviar’s flavor spiral for this drink is pretty accurate, though I would like to add that my friend and I thought it had more of an herbal or fennel/licorice after taste. For me it’s a little more on the sweeter spectrum than I prefer. I don’t foresee myself buying this again until I have tried other cognacs out there.
