Called the Camus Single Growth 1983 Fins Bois, this beautifully presented bottle is the product of a year of inclement weather. This included heavy hailstorms followed by a very hot summer. It’s solely from the Fins Bois growing area, and the year the eaux de vie was harvested coincides with the 120th anniversary of the house of Camus.
The elegant bottle is presented in a wooden presentation case with a copper and oak finish. This is a tribute both to nature as well as to the craftsmen who created it. And, as you would expect from such a rare cognac, there’s not that much available, with only 990 bottle being produced in total.
We’ve not had a chance to taste it, but the tasting notes from Camus say that, “the nose is open and complex, combining nutmeg aromas with a dash of orange zest and sweet spice, backed with subtle hints of undergrowth. The palate is balanced, rounded ad dense, with a velvety-smooth finish.”
The cost of a bottle of Camus Rarissimes 1983 Fins Bois Cognac is $770 US dollars (duty free price).
