Courvoisier Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition is a limited edition release from the brand and the first in the Avant-Garde series. The blend was created by master blender Patrice Pinet and master distiller BenoƮt DeSutter. They began by selecting VS cognac and then finished its maturation in former Kentucky bourbon barrels. As cognac regulations limit used barrels to wine or fortified wine, this spirit is not allowed to be called cognac. Bottled at 80 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Simple in its elements, but displays a fairly even marriage between the softer notes of cognac and the more assertive flavors from the bourbon barrel. Aromas of cinnamon and toasted nuts yield to a brighter orange peel note. Vanilla and cotton candy lead the way at the front of the tongue with more terse barrel tannins closing out. "
