Camus
Very Special Cognac

Category: VS Cognac

Date Tasted:
Country: France
Alcohol: 40%
Golden amber color. Interesting aromas of ripe heirloom apple, caramel, sticky date pudding, and hint of smoked nuts with a satiny, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, compelling, medium-length cherry stone liqueur, orange marmalade, and cinnamon smoke finish. A fruity and cheerful VS cognac that offers a great value.

V.S. (Very Superior, also known as V.S.P or Three Star, very superior pale and ***) Cognacs require a minimum of two years aging in a cask, although the industry average is four to five years. These are generally lighter in style with more young, fruity flavors that make them a good choice for classic Cognac cocktails like a Sidecar, Brandy Alexander, or the original version of the Mint Julep.
