This time it’s the turn of Bisquit Cognac to launch a new product to market. And what an exciting one it is – a limited edition that’s entitled Bisquit XO Rose Gold Cognac. Created to commemorate the year that Bisquit Cognac came into being – in 1819 – the house has limited the edition to just that number: 1819 bottles.
According to the cognac house, Bisquit XO Rose Gold, “uniquely reflects the savoir-faire, craft and meticulous attention to detail passed down through the generations by founder, Alexandre Bisquit, himself.”
As the name implies, the decanter of Bisquit XO Rose Gold has a beautiful gold and copper colour. This Rose Gold colour originates from a gold and copper alloy and pays tribute to the copper stills that are used in the cognac’s distillation.
Bisquit XO Rose Gold is presented in a lovely, hand painted and decorated decanter. This in itself is a masterpiece in its own right, more than a gentle nod towards the house’s meticulous attention to detail. Each decanter is sealed with a cork, individually numbered and presented in a gift box.
Maitre de Chai of Bisquit, Denis Lahouratate, personally selected only six rare eaux-de-vies to blend for this creation, producing a cognac that stands for the epitome of the style of the house: a smooth blend with a “generous bouquet of aromas”.
Of his creation, Lahouratate says, “Bisquit XO Rose Gold’s remarkable colour and bouquet of aromas are the result of Bisquit’s master of time – in knowing how and when to give things their own time to come to full expression.”
The tasting notes from the house say that “the bouquet is expressed around a core of wood notes, mahogany and sandalwood, and smoky ones of tobacco and cocoa. This is followed by notes of candied fruit – orange, apricot and prune – and finally, spicy one of ginger, clove and nutmeg.”
The Bisquit Cognac XO Rose Gold will be duty-free exclusive and is going to be available on a worldwide basis from September 2014. Once we have a price we’ll post an update here.
