A brilliant orange/gold appearance is a pleasure to behold. The bouquet reveals a waxy top note followed by sweet cigar box, followed by an intense core of orange blossom, dried apricot and vanilla. The palate possesses nice poise and concentration with a semi sweet burst of stewed apricot at mid-palate followed by hints of date and almond. Very gentle heat, concludes dry with a delicious late almond and honey finish.

The Ferrand family can trace its history as makers of Cognac in Segonzac, in the heart of the Grande Champagne area of Cognac, all the way back to 1702. In the 1970s, Pierre Ferrand created his own trademark and launched his label of Cognac. Today, Pierre's family is one of the few Cognac houses that are specialised in old Cognacs. The Ferrand family are known as a traditional family of bouilleur de cru, which is a Cognac maker who distills only the juice of its own vineyard. Cognac is the result of the blender's art. Pierre has been developing skills in the art of blending since he was a child, as those skills have been passed down from generation to generation.
