Pierre Ferrand, world renowned for its fine 100% Grande Champagne cognacs, is introducing a special cognac to complement a superior smoke : Pierre Ferrand Cigar Blend, Reserve Havana. “We wanted a cognac that is in balance with a structured cigar. This cognac works well because of the inherent structure of Grande Champagne cognacs”, explains Ferrand’s Jean-Dominique Andreu, an avid cigar smoker himself. For six years, they have been the sole cognac suppliers to the prestigious Club des Parlermentaires Amateurs de Havane, which counts among its members France’s top politicians.
Brilliant amber color. Dense aroma of dried lilacs, honeyed nuts, suede, and sweet baking spices follow through on a soft, silky entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with ripe poached pear, dried apple, and cinnamon notes coming to the fore. Finishes with a long, spicy floral honey, mineral and nut accented. A super smooth, highly polished XO that drinks effortlessly.
