An elegant fruitbomb, this medium-bodied Vieille Reserve from respected single estate producers Guillon Painturaud is quite a feminine cognac, delicate and approachable with ripe raisin & fig flavours.
The Fillioux family have been making Cognac since 1880. The Cigar Club has been created to be the perfect accompaniment to a cigar, although it's just as delicious on its own. Unctuous with a long finish.
A Cognac specially designed to be an accompaniment to a cigar, put together by A E Dor. It's a blend that includes Petite and Grande Champagne cognacs as well as a number of spirits that have been aged in new oak casks - this gives an extra woodiness that helps the Cognac stand up to a cigar's flavours.
A special edition cognac from Hine, produced by Cellar Master Eric Forget to honour Thomas Hine, the house's founder. It's a blend of three early landed Grande Champagne cognacs from 1984, 1986 and 1987 which were matured in the UK, as well as some extra old cognac from the Hine cellars in Jarnac.
