This cognac is made from wines from two regions in the Champagne region of France (grande champagne and petite champagne)- thus, the "fine champagne" on the bottle) and is aged eight to twelve years. It is gold-caramel colored, and when nosed has hints of oak, cinnamon, and an alcohol ester that can water the eyes. Drink it in and you will taste oak and then a nutty finish. It is a little hot going down, and if swished about the mouth will prick the tongue
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (90): strong.
sweet, grapes, floral, citrus, wood.
Palate (87): smooth, powerful.
grapes, wood, spices, apples biscuits.
Finish (85): longer than average.
citrus, grapes, spices.
So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Courvoisier VSOP Cognac with 87 points over 100.
