Made with ugni blanc grapes, Cognac Park VSOP is a blend of brandies from the Fins Bois, Petite Champagne, and Grande Champagne crus. The eau-de-vie sits in lightly toasted new casks of French Limousin oak for 8 months, before being transferred to older, used casks for a total of 8 to 12 years of maturation. After blending, it is bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Cognac Park's VSOP strikes a fine balance of oak and fruit. Medium-bodied, it has notes of toasted wood, light citrus zest, and a touch of almond and orange blossom. It's a solid everyday cognac, enjoyable enough to sip on its own and priced to be suitable for mixing too."
