Perhaps one of the world’s most recognised and famous Cognac brands, 1738 is a special blend to honour the Accord Royal. My rating is 20/25
WHAT THE MAKERS SAY:
Fruity, exotic fruits. Oak, Chocolate, Vanilla
Strong Fruit, sweeter chocolate notes, and subtle spices
Round, Mellow, a particularly dense sensation
Full fruit nose, with softer sweet elements
Strong peaches, chocolate, vanilla and well balanced oak. Classic Fine Champagne Cognac minerality is there, but subtle.
Very full in the mouth, fruity with a lingering vanilla sweetness
Serving suggestions: Neat in a snifter. To date the best tasting Cognac sampled. A lot more fruit driven, without losing it’s signature spice and minerality. A definite Cognac winner.
