Good afternoon brandy nerds. If you’re seeing this update, it means that today is sale day!
Everything with the casks we chose has been finalized and our Jean-Luc Pasquet casks of Lot 73 and Lot 92 petite champagne Cognac are now for sale!
Cask 1 for us is a 1973 vintage Cognac from JLP. Distilled in Petite Champagne and bottled at true cask strength, this bottling comes to us at 50.3% ABV. Displaying rich notes of toffee, tobacco, concord grape and nutty sweetness, this bottling was a great example of oak and fruit, with neither in excess.
Cask 2 for us is a 1992 vintage Cognac, also from JLP. Distilled in Petite Champagne as well, this truly cask strength bottling comes to us at a very potent 61.4% ABV. This cask powerfully demonstrated sweet frosting, fruity notes like orange marmalade, blackberry, baked apples and figs. With less oak than Lot 73, this bright, fruity delight was a great yin to the yang of the mustier, more savory cask of Lot 73.
Both bottlings are now for sale via Fine Drams.
- Lot 73 : 172 EUR (w/VAT) | $150 USD
- Lot 92 : 117 EUR (w/VAT) | $102 USD
