It tastes like candied fruits and gingerbread—sweet, spicy, and delicate. The moment it touches your lips, its undeniable flavor is what sets it apartelegant in finish but complex in flavor.

Martell, the longstanding cognac maker in the world (founded in the 17th century), proves why they are a legend in this playing field: the Cordon Bleu is divinely delicious, with strong pear and vanilla notes, this mellow, fruity whiskey tastes like charred oranges and cinnamon.

This same cognac was served during the coronation of King George V of England, so its history is studded with royalty, and its taste is simply delicious. We recommend it: neat, after dinner, with a jazz record on, and a beautiful companion by your side.
