Cognac’s essential difference from most other spirits is that its aromatic components derive directly and exclusively from the grape, and its quality is dictated by the nature of the terroirs where they are grown.
Each Cognac is unique, however at the same time you can cluster them into groups with similar interests and characters called flavour camps. Two major styles of Cognac’s are Dry/Clear and Rich/Grapey, and within these there are flavours and aromas including: fruits (berry, stone, tropical, citrus), floral, nutty, woody (oaky, caramel, vanilla), and spices.
This Cognac tasting has been organized with a curated selection of Cognacs that appear in the different Cognac flavour camps. Grouping the Cognacs like this helps you to identify the major types of Cognac you prefer, which helps you to zero in on new Cognacs to try that belong to similar cohorts.
