Tasting Notes

Cigar sitting atop a glass of French cognac.


This complex cognac opens with exquisite notes of sandalwood and cigar leaves and just a hint of summer blossoms.

Honey droplets


What follows is a toffee, marzipan and fresh honey sweetness, sophisticated and indulgent. 

Dried apricots


Full-bodied yet surprisingly delicate notes of liquorice, dried plum and apricot build up to a decadent, lingering finish.

What the experts say

"We created L'essence de Courvoisier from the finest eau-de-vie from the early 20th century."
