Brilliant amber color. Intricate aromas and flavors of buttery pistachio brittle, floral honey, grassy herbs, creme brulee and dried fruits with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a delicate finish with crushed nuts, chocolate orange peel, pencil shavings, mocha, and peppery spice notes. An elegant artisanal style for sipping or top shelf craft cocktails.

V.S.O.P. (very superior old pale or very special old pale) Cognac has been aged a minimum of four years, although many examples are aged as long as ten to fifteen years or even longer. It is aged longer than a VS (very special), but less than an X.O.

Produced by both large and small Cognac houses, VSOP has remarkable complexity, especially with the long period of aging, which rounds out the Cognac, while adding a distinct spiciness and vanilla character. These are priced from $30 to $55 per bottle and need to be sipped slowly after dinner on their own or with a cigar. Given the marketing prowess of the large firms as well as their breeding and prestige, VSOP Cognac have been and continue to be one of the most popular spirits in America and around the world.
