Gold color. Aromas and flavors of lemon oils, red apple and clove, black plum and figs, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and and clove with a round, bright, dry medium body and a delightful, medium-length finish displaying notes of caramel cream and toffee, chocolate covered orange peel, raspberry syrup on a s’more, and wood spice and pepper. Good enough to sip alone but has a tinge of spice and heat that will showcase agreeably in classic cocktails.

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.
