The Camus VSOP Elegance Cognac bottled at 40% was hiding behind door number 19 of the Drinks by the Dram Cognac Advent Calendar. On the nose first a sweet mix of flavours with woody spices, peaches, nettle, vanilla, roses and fudge is given to me. Red apples, coconut, pepper and toasted bread right behind it with honeysuckle and orange blossom.
Creamy vanilla, gingerbread, raisins, cake notes, dried apricots, loads of honey, lemon, oranges, pecan nuts (very lightly) and canned tropical fruit juice on the palate. A sweet cognac, decent length finish, with a good balance of spices, dried fruits, floral and earthy notes. Find this one very interesting. Thanks for sharing a sample Drinks by the Dram!
