Courvoisier, the cognac house of Beam Inc., has added a new cognac, C by Courvoisier to its portfolio. C by Courvoisier is promoted as “full of attitude, boasting a daring, intense flavor profile that stands out from the crowd and showcases a new side of cognac”.
C by Courvoisier is an intense blend of small-batch-produced cognac specially selected from 50 winegrowers in the Fin Bois Cru. The cognac goes through a double-barrel aging process to result in a smooth, full-bodied taste experience.
“The liquid is first aged in young barrels to bring out a strong, wood character and give it a full-bodied, intense flavor,” said Patrice Pinet, Master Blender for Courvoisier. “It is then aged in mature barrels to round out the taste profile and deliver a silky finish. With hints of carnation, orange peel, clove, toast and crusty bread in its flavor profile, it is best served chilled for a truly unforgettable experience.”
Packaged in Courvoisier’s iconic Josephine bottle, C by Courvoisier boasts of a rich flavor balancing between floral, fruity aromas and wood, with notes of carnation, orange peel, clove, toast and crusty bread.
Courvoisier has also recently released Courvoisier Rose, a lower-ABV liquid—a refreshing combination of the house’s premium cognac and French Red wine grapes.
C by Courvoisier is available beginning February, 2012 at a suggested retail price of $34.99 (26€) for a 750ml bottle.
