Review #1142 | Brandy Review #42 – Daniel Bouju Royal 15yr Cognac Brandy

The Schtick: This is a moderately aged, high proof cognac from Daniel Bouju, produced using champagne grapes and imported by KLWines in California. It recently underwent a label change, and I’m curious if anything else changed, so lets dive in. 

Distiller: Daniel Bouju

Bottler: Daniel Bouju

ABV: 60% ABV

Selection: N/A

Age: 15 Years

Nose: Astounding richness. Loads of pepper, jammy fruits, tobacco and cocoa. Tons of currant, raspberry, cherry, grape and blackberry. 

Taste: Thick and rich mouth feel, although there is some heat. Blackberry is really prominent, paired with cherry, raspberry, syrupy jam and caramel. Oak is present but not overbearing. Really lovely palate. Strong structure. 

Finish: Long, rich and oaky with a strong fruit structure. Brown sugar, blackberry, pipe tobacco and jammy cherry.

Overall: Wow, just wow. This continues to impress, really good bottle and one of the few bottles in the last couple years I’d feel compelled to rebuy again and again,. 

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 8
