Amber color. Fruity aromas and flavors of creme brulee, cinnamon-dusted raisins, pear blossom, kiwi preserves, and toasted hazelnut with a satiny, crisp, fruity light body and an effortless, intriguing, medium-length finish. An easy-drinking, fruit-forward VS Cognac that’s an effortless crowdpleaser.

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.
