ABOUT THE SPIRIT
Cognac Leyrat is part of a portfolio of single-estate cognacs produced by Domaines Francis Abecassis, a family-owned company who works with growers to create cognacs of distinctive character. The eau-de-vie for Cognac Leyrat is sourced from Domaine de Chez Maillard, a 90-hectare estate on limestone soils in the Fins Bois region of Cognac. The Leyrat still includes an onion-shaped 'chapiteau', which causes alcoholic vapour rising up the still to re-condense and fall back into the pot, to be re-distilled and thereby further refined.
Delicate aromas, with a whiff of wood-smoke, wild flowers and white fruit. The palate features vanilla-pod, cinnamon and nutmeg, with a wonderfully rounded, lingering finish. Exceptionally elegant, and supremely enjoyable.
Best enjoyed neat, perhaps lightly chilled - ice will diminish the delicacy of the spirit. Perfect with a lightly flavoured cigar . a Hoyo Epicure, perhaps...
VSOP stands for Very Superior Old Pale. This cognac has been aged for at least 4 years (and undoubtedly includes much older components), and balances a fresh, youthful character with the richness of long-ageing.
