Sorry about this...

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.

Rémy Martin VSOP Cognac Reviews

Crap

Very disappointed. Tried for the first time.
I usually drink Otard VSOP and I wanted something different.
Will never but this again.

Berries and caramalised banana

Drank at room temperature, it's just a really nice drink, but upon warming by candle/hand, that's when the varied notes come out to play.
Mixed berry is the strongest note and at the forefront of the taste.. blackberries, red currants, raspberry, strawberry. Then the toasted caramelised taste of banana, which lingers in the aftertaste, alongside the citrus notes one experiences when eating honey.

I'm new to the world of cognac and have sampled one or two others, but this was decent enough for me to enjoy and not give away. Perhaps there are better, there are definitely worse. Very pleased

Okay. Not bad at all.

Nose: vanilla, leather, apricot, burnt orange, a touch of cedar with a wine note.
Taste: spiciness, winey, vanilla, caramel, clove, allspice.
Finish: warm, spicey, alcoholic.

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!

unpleasant

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.
