The Artisan Edition of Courvoisier VSOP has been aged in three types cask. Initially maturation in new French oak for extra spiciness, then into traditional Limousin oak casks to add aromatics, before being finished in old oak vats. The result is a more complex and rounded spirit. A fine Champagne cognac made exclusively from the grande and petite champagnes, which are the best quality grapes from the Cognac region. Amber in colour, silky smooth with some chocolate overtones and a nutty, slightly citrus finish. Hints of vanilla, grilled almonds and port wine.
