If you’re a fan of the Camus Rarissimes range then you’re gong to love the latest offering due to hit the market next month. The Camus Rarissimes 40 Year Old Cognac is, as the name suggests, a blend of eaux-de-vie all guaranteed to have aged for a minimum of four decades.
And, as you would expect for such an aged cognac, there’s not very many bottles being produced: Only 991, to be exact. The cognac is a blend from only three separate casks, and is the creation of Patrick Leger, Cellar Master of the house of Camus. Each bottle has been filled in the presence of a bailiff, and signed by the Cellar Master for authenticity.
The Camus Rarissimes range are all extraordinary cognacs, each carefully chosen to mark either a special event, vineyard or vintage. The Camus Rarissimes 40 Year Old Cognac is presented in a classic shaped bottle that has subtle hints of topaz and an antique gold shimmer. The bottle is beautifully encased in an oak presentation case and is numbered and signed for authenticity.
So, what can you expect it to taste like? Well, the tasting notes from Camus say that ‘Each aroma is expressed freely, lengthening into candied fruit notes with a touch of oak.’ You can also expect to taste floral and spicy notes, and a delicious touch of marron glace.
This limited edition bottle will be unveiled at the Singapore TFWA and the Hong Kong Vinexpo. It will be available to purchase worldwide from June 2014. The maximum recommended duty free price is $780 US dollars / 590 Euros.
