Sometimes you want to sample a cognac from a different producer, but you’re not quite sure if you want to splash out on a large bottle. So this tasting box ( with VS VSOP XO Cognac ) from artisan producer, Dobbé Cognac is the perfect solution. This wholly family run brand has produced a great set that could be consumed yourself, or would be a great gift for anyone who loves cognac.
The set contains three ‘cigar tubes’ of cognac – 50ml miniatures of the house’s VS, VSOP and XO Grand Century blends. The packaging of this miniature set is one of understated sophistication – exactly what you’d expect from a house that prides itself on typical French elegance and class.
But what of the cognacs? Well, the house has vineyards in both Petite Champagne and Fins Bois terroir, and their cognacs are a blend of grapes from both. In fact, Cognac Expert had the opportunity to taste all three of the blends in the tasting box late last year, and you can see our review of all of them here.
The tasting box was launched in the China Airlines Sky Boutique this month, and will also be presented to industry buyers at the TFWA Asia Pacific event during May 2015.
