Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Rémy Martin VSOP Cognac to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Rémy Martin VSOP Bottling Note

An immensely popular VSOP Cognac from the ever-dependable Rémy Martin. The blend contains 55% Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, the rest being made up from the Petite Champagne. Well-suited to enjoying as a postprandial tipple, but can also be used in cocktails that need a hearty helping of complex Cognac flavours.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Berry fruits and sweet cereals. White grape, a touch of black olive and custard cream.

Palate: Vanilla, manuka honey and red berry coulis. Dried figs, banana chips and a touch of spice.

Finish: Truffle and honey.

This page used to be Mature Cask

This page used to be the clear btl Mature cask but is now the new batch VSOP.

This new batch is way better than the Mature Cask but alas pales in comparison to the old batch..

Don't get me wrong it's light fresh & vanilla packed but the spirit still has a young unaged edged to it.

Better but not quite what it used to be yet, needs mort time in the wood to soften.

Not for me

Lacks fruity notes and has no depth of taste. Terrible for this price!

new version rough tastes more like a cheap whisky won't buy again whatever happened to the smooth fine drink I used to enjoy!!!!

Good for what it is, not single malt

I've hated it until last night. This time it was subtle, fruity, easy to drink. The harsh alcohol was not there.

I find that I often need to go back to a drink without expectations, sip it gently, and enjoy for what it is not what I want. I enjoy sweet peat, Ardbeg fan, still looking for a great blended inexpensive Scotch. I do like good brandy also.

It is all marketing, remember that..

it's a play on words... Hidden in plain sight!

Mature cask - meaning the casks are mature not necessarily the spirit.

Mature casks = 3rd, 4th, 5th even gozillionth refill casks that are tired & lifeless with no wood esters left for flavour, just vague remnants of the previous spirit that last sat in them.

This gives you a smooth yet bland, easily forgetable & unintresting experience.

Good wood is hard to find & at a premium in the aged spirit industry atm & it's getting worse...
Quantity over quality seems to be the business mentality as profit drives success at present not the other way round!

This is bad for consumers & the only way to curb private sector greed is afarmative action & boycoting of any consumer product that is of poor quality.

Hit 'big business' in the wallett is what I say, maybe then they'll listen, it is all up to us as consumers to act.

"Mature Cask" is BAD, not good.

We should remind ourselves what the term "mature cask finish" means:
The cognac is aged in used, flavour-less, old barrels. Hennessy XO for example states that most of their XO eau-de-vies start in frehsly charred barrels, soaking up the most intense flavours from the fresh (burned) wood. Now Remy is dealing mostly with customers that do not understand that. When some hear: "Aged in old barrels", they may think of long ageeing, while in fact the spirit is aged in garbage-quality barrels that have served their life. It is true altough that such an old barrel may keep some of the flavour of the previous, longer aged spirit (used for XOs). Now to the taste. Directly Compares to Courvoisier VSOP and Hennessy VSOP I found: Green unripe pear, soap (!), unpleasant acidity and yeast.

Guess why I still drink it: It always serves as a benchmark since I am used to drink at least two cognacs at a time. This way, I better appreciate and differenciate the taste components of the other cognacs.

Great for cocktails

Solid choice for cocktails, punchy and rich. Bung it in with champagne and lemon, get in there! I can’t recommend drinking this neat - it’s just too harsh on its own.
Tame it with plenty of ice if you must - but if you want a good value Cognac for drinking neat or with a little ice - Henessey Fine De Cognac spanks this soundly.

Allergic reaction

Have read all review and can see many disappointed people, my disappointment is for a different reason. I am a celiac sufferer. On both occasions of drinking this drink ,I have had reactions ? Clearly printed on allergen list that there are no known allegents? Very stange

8th February 2019

I will stick to Martel VSOP ;)

Dissapointment is a best word to describe this "Cognac".In comparison the Martel VSOP is for the similar price just two classes above this one.

Cinnamon liquor

Unfortunately the critical reviews seem to be right. I bought a bottle late last year and thought it tasted different from how I remeber it to be (super velvety smooth pure cognac taste, delicious). NOW it struck me with a cinnamony taste I can’t remember ever having noticed before. It was so much like a cinamon liquor I decided to google “has the taste of remy martin vsop changed”. Guess what shows up...
UTTERLY disappointed. Won’t buy it anymore. Need to find a good alternative, any suggestions?!

p. poor

My Mum was born in 1951 & has drank the original all her life, she even has kept the last empty green btl she was bought by Gran b4 she died.

She states thie new version is p. poor!

She mainly drinks wine now or the odd Spanish brandy she states their better value & more interesting than mature cask & infinatly more chuffable.

12th October 2018

Such a disappointment. Bring back the original Remy VSOP!

Such a shame as the original was a classic cognac.

This is a pale imitation!

Won't be drinking it again!

13th July 2017

Disappointed, please bring back my favourite tipple.

SO disappointed, I have been drinking Remy all my adult life, (I am 67) and I expected this to be the same if not better than the V.S.O.P. I am used to. After all, why replace a good product with an inferior one? And this really is not as good as it should be.

I have been used to keeping a bottle of my favourite cognac to one side for special guests and occasions and I would normally buy six bottles at a time. Unfortunately I now have five early Christmas presents for my Xmas list, (non family)!

To rate this brandy, I would say it is quite good but not very special. In fact now I think about it, I have a bottle of Spanish brandy that is at least as good as this new Remy, (Spain is not noted for its brandy).

I do hope the good people at Remy Martin have a change of heart and bring back my favourite indulgence as soon as possible.

Mell Duney drinks Remy Martin VSOP

If you really want to enjoy a beautifully crafted and delicious cognac look no further! When it comes to Remy Martin VSOP, I must bespoke its exquisite brilliance! I understand I must sound like a commercial or a paid representative but I assure you I am but a simple connoisseur of this artisanal cognac! From the rooftops of the world, heartedly shouting with excitement, "indeed, Mell Duney drinks Remy Martin VSOP!" Thank you

remy martin


2nd July 2016

Indeed dont fix what aint broke.

My Mother has drank VSOP since b4 I was born & for them to up & change it & without even explaining why is just plain wrong...
She holds onto the last Frosted green Btl my Gran bought her the Xmas b4 she died & in a pained attempt to reminis over lost loved ones still pours this poor facsimile into the btl. for the win anyday!

After being lucky enough to find a bottle of the original VSOP I was fortunate enough to taste a decent Remy. After buying this bottle all my expectations have changed. It is evident that it is afar from the original. So much so I am thinking that the recipe is completely different as with said bottle, it went from being alright then a fortnight later the taste changed to drinking something that resembles brandy flavoured mouthwash.

22nd February 2015

Not as good as the original :(

Don't get me wrong, it isn't undrnkable, but for the first time ever, I think I would rather a good quality generic brandy rather than a Remy Cognac.

If you have a somewhat rough whisky and mix it with some proper cognac, the result tastes a bit like this. Great shame. I only logged in on here in the offchance that they might have had a stock pile of the proper stuff. Alas no.

1st November 2014

why change

Why discontinue remy vsop, I drink 3 bottles a week and love vsop I would be willing to pay more but why discontinue such a awesome product.

11th October 2014

Why do you have to discontinue such a great drink

I have always brought remy and like the bottle but just brought it this christmas in the box when I opened it only to find it in an ordinary glass bottle and the taste was not the same. Will not be buying it any more.

10th January 2014

good stuff

<3 I love this , i could drink this all day. I knew i would find a favorite drink eventually

23rd December 2013

Drank it for years but now.......

Rémy Martin VSOP was beautiful i could go through a bottle a week. But now the mature cask well I think it's more like Whiskey than Cognac i have since went onto Hennessy Fine De Cognac & will remain their until such times change.Poor show from Rémy Martin but variety is the spice of life just check out the Samples on here until you find an alternative.

30th October 2013

Shame this is being discontinued

I'm with your mother on this one. This cognac is the only one I have found which I like the taste of. It's replacement is just not as good. I've just bought 3 bottles while I can still get hold of it. I don't think it's cost cutting by the manufacturer, more a case of them aligning their product to their market, which is now America, who would appear to like different taste. Shame. My advice is buy it while you can

30th March 2013

Why is this being Discontinued ?

My Mother has been a Cognac drinker all her life & states its a shame to see such a good classic & reasonably priced 1 like Rémy Martin VSOP Cognac be discontinued in favour of Rémy Martin Mature Cask VSOP which she considers an inferior product. Point in fact, why fix it if it ain't broke... (Unless it's cost cutting measures by manufacturer...)

First Cognac

I hadn't drank brandy in about 14 years and this was my first cognac ever. Couldn't finish a mini bottle. It smelled nice and all but the lack of smoothness was horrible. I guess I am still too young to understand Cognac. Not much flavor and too harsh. I will sip a nice bourbon, scotch, rum, tequila or even vodka rather than this stuff. I understand that it could have been worse but yikes! I don't get the appeal.
