Aqua Ignis Cognac

Category: VS Cognac

Amber color. Aromas of cola, chai tea, candied nuts, prune, and dried banana with a supple, crisp, fruity medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-length spiced caramel, hazelnut creme, and hints of prosciutto finish. A rich VS Cognac that delivers great intensity for the category; Sazeracs and Vieux Carres await.

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.
