Le Voyage de Delamain Cognac Reviews
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: I could smell this for hours and still be picking out new aromas. Very complex with leather, tobacco, coffee and spice box all present. After a few minutes, hints of dried fruit and walnut begin to appear.
Palate: Rich and full-bodied yet elegant at the same time. As you would expect from a Cognac of this age, there is spice from the wood, but it’s not overpowering and is in perfect balance, with walnut, liquorice, tobacco, coffee, fig and the slightest touch of menthol.
Finish: Exceptionally long – I could still taste it 20 minutes after the tasting had ended. Any hints of fruit slowly faded, leaving notes of cigar box, leather and coffee.
Comment: I have been lucky enough to try a few spirits that have taken me by surprise, and the first nosing and tasting of Voyage was definitely my wow moment for Cognac. To be so balanced and elegant after around half a century in wood is testament to the blending skill of Charles and his team.
