Pierre Ferrand Ambre Cognac
Cognac — Grande Champagne, France
Reviewed October 31, 2020 (edited March 26, 2022)
Pierre Ferrand Ambre is one of the entry level cognacs in their lineup and for the price it's highly recommended, especially in cocktails. Although to be fair for about the same cost the 1840 is probably even better for cocktails. The nose has a nice musk followed by orange peel. The palate is highlighted by honey, more citrus notes and oak. The finish is pretty smooth with only a light burn but along with the nose and palate it's pretty unremarkable. I wouldnt say this is a must try cognac by any means. Its relatively young at around 10 years but it's a solid everyday sipper, just not incredibly unique. If I was rating this just on its own it would be average, maybe slightly above but combined with the value it definitely deserves a bit of a bump to a 3.5. This, the 1840 and Hine H are my go to cocktail cognacs.
