A classic blend of Courvoisier Cognacs with a hint of toffee and vanilla chew on the back palate.
Courvoisier… not many brand names are as synonymous with prestige and quality. The name has seeped into our culture. It has appeared in Woody Allen and James Bond films, been rapped about by Busta Rhymes and Ice Cube, been hailed by Stevie Nicks, and appeared in hundreds of TV shows. That’s quite a pop-culture resume. But they earned their place in history. Founded in 1809 by Emmanuel Courvoisier, the company — now owned by Beam Suntory — has been making Cognac and only Cognac for more than 200 years.
Courvoisier is adding a new release to its permanent core line-up. The Avant Garde will be a place of experimentation by their master distiller to push the boundaries of what Cognac can be. The first edition is Courvoisier Avant Garde Bourbon Cask Edition — a blend of Courvoisier Cognacs from VS to Napoleon finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks for up to four months. The finishing adds a hint of rich vanilla and caramel to the florals and fruit in the Cognac.
