The Schtick: This is a moderately aged, high proof cognac from Daniel Bouju, produced using champagne grapes and imported by KLWines in California.
Distiller: Daniel Bouju
Bottler: Daniel Bouju
ABV: 60% ABV
Age: 15 Years
Nose: Rich cocoa, tobacco, pepper. Super jammy, figs, blackberry, currants, raspberries. Fudge.
Taste: Thick, rich, ultimately super fruity. Caramel apples, raspberry jam, blackberries, currants, cranberry. Syrupy and sweet, with hefty oak bite, and a nice spicy backbone. Great structure, heat is very much in check given the proof.
Finish: Long, sweet and fruity with a strong oak backbone. Some molasses, brown sugar, jammy grape extract.
Overall: Phenomenal, and gone too soon. I split this bottle locally with friends and immediately regret not having more on hand.
