Here’s an exciting new cognac to hit the market.  This time it’s the turn of Martell to whet our whistle with their limited edition, the Martell Millesimes 1971 Cognac.

New Product: Martell Millesimes 1971 Cognac

This high end tipple has been created by combining three vintage eaux-de-vies from the most prestigious crus, each selected for the character and flavour, not to mention the way they combine together to create the finished product.  This is the second cognac in the Martell Millesimes collection; the first being the vintage 1968.

Both are the brainchild of Martell’s cellar master, Benoit Fil, and are a celebration of the expertise and heritage of the cognac house.

We’ve not yet had the chance to sample the Millesimes 1971, but according to Martell’s tasting notes, the palate is ‘ample, with initial notes of dried fruits and rancio.’

The cognac is presented in a delightfully simple bottle, and comes packaged in a classic wooden case.

The cost of a bottle of Martell Millesimes 1971 Cognac will be $838 US dollars.  But if you want to purchase some for yourself, then you’re going to need to take a trip to Asia to do so.  And that’s because the cognac is only going to be available through Pernod Ricard Travel Retail at the Martell points of sale in Kuala Lumpur Airport, Hong Kong International Airport, DFS ‘T’ Galleria in Singapore, King Power Duty Free’s Srivaree in Bangkok and the Ever Rich Taiwan Beihu Duty Free Shop.

However, from April 2014, Martell will extend distribution across China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia.
