    Complex burnt barley sugar butter and toffee fudge cream w hint of apples plum and apricot mash. Needs airing for 1 hour in glass and also v v small drop of water. Too much will ruin it...its not like whiskey in that respect. Big step up from other vsop brands!

    Wanting to buy my husband a nice bottle of cognac and after reading all reviews on all the cognac , I decided on this one. My husband REALLY likes it, he's no expert, but he says it very smooth and very drinkable, so much so I'm ordering another bottle for Christmas. He would recommend, one of the nicest cognac he's had .

    I can't find a better Cognac for the price. Keep going back to it.

    Love it, one of the best. I''ve had X.O. in other brands not taste this good.

    Excellent VSOP for the price, very mellow and fruity. And I have tried other Hine cognacs. It has now become my favourite cognac house!

    All these positive comments don't add up to one great old bottle of the true Hine Rare Champaine VSOP of the previous owners and years.

    Makes a terrific classic Champagne cocktail.

    Benchmark VSOP. Nose of barley sugar and violets, quite big flavours, some tannin showing but good richness on the finish.

    Beautiful Brandy tried it for the first time today with my fellow top notch Brandy tasters. Yes, it's true it is much in line with the top brandy leaders, without a shadow off a doubt. Very impressed. Cheers.

    A really good VSOP for the money. I wouldn't say its the best cognac of it type or price but it is a contender.

    For Brian's information - sadly Rare and Delicate hasn't been produced for about 10 years. It was my favourite cognac to give my dinner guests, (I keep a bottle of Hine Antique for when I am accompanied ONLY, by a pot of good coffee and a Romeo y Julieta Churchill - sheer bliss). I now offer my guests this VSOP. Personally, I think the Rare and Delicate a touch better but it is a most acceptable replacement.

    Without doubt Hine is the best Cognac and the Hine Rare VSOP is excellent. However, years ago I regularily bought Hine Rare and Delicate (usually in Italy) but I can no longer find this. Can anyone help or does anyone know that it is no longer available.

    i have bought and drunk this brandy before and i found it is smoother than remy martin.in fact i did a test with my sister in law who previously favoured remy,she is converted.for the extra few pounds it is smoother ,has a lovely flavour

    Easily the best cognac under £50. This isn't just excellent for its price - it's excellent full-stop. It's the best cognac I've tasted, and that includes other makers' XO bottles that are more than twice the price.

  • Anonymous 29 July 2010

    Agreed, this is hands down the best VSOP I've had. Tastes as smooth and refined as other makers' XO bottles.

  • Anonymous 27 July 2010

    Lovely stuff, if you cant afford a bottle of XO then give this a go, it tastes way better than other VSOP, so its a good compromise between VSOP and XO.
