Nick Faith is the author of Cognac and The Guide To Cognac.

Nose: it seems ridiculous that one’s first impression of a seventy year old cognac is how fresh, young, and delicious it is. The aromas have the richness of summer flowers, with hints of the sea wafting in from the Atlantic coast.

Taste: Take your time in nosing this Cognac. When eventually you sip this delicate liquid you come across the same floral notes in a much more complex form, bursting into life. The traditional copper still used to distill this spirit gives its own unique flavours.

Finish: Once again, the length and complexity of the finish is surprising in such an ancient liquid. The fiery notes of the Cognac linger in the mouth, along with floral and even fruity notes. And the glass itself retains the notes long after the last drop has been savoured.
First the nose. When you crack the wax, draw the cork, it fills the room. A waft of old roses, but charged with a touch of citrus; its history is manifest at every step. The complexity of sensations stems from that history: distilled in 1947 in a small, ancient copper still, burning wood or charcoal, it’s rich in the imperfections that mark the exceptional from the simply fine Cognac.

Deep bronze, like fine old walnut furniture, but with a flash of gold reflecting this still sprightly veteran’s many-faceted charm.

In the mouth, you will find great complication. First, rich old preserved fruits. Then a burst of flowers, breathing of spring. And finally, the bite of the ancient eau-de-vie – the ‘fire’ that belongs only to Cognac.

Please savour every drop. And if you leave the empty glass overnight you find lovely echoes when you nose the glass once more. This extraordinary cognac was distilled in 1947 and – nearly 70 years later – has lost none of its charm and freshness. A collector’s dream. Tom Jago, The Last Drop
