Tasting and enjoying a cognac.
• Leave your cognac to rest for a few minutes in a glass until it reaches room temperature.
Ladies (and gentlemen !) avoid wearing strong scented perfumes that would mask the cognac's aromas.
• Have a first quick smell and let your childhood memories rise up from the glass
(stewed or fresh fruit, flower, apricots, granny's pastry, spices, leather, tobacco, etc.).
• Take a sip and let it flush your palate.
Feel on your tongue the spicy, leathery and wild notes.
Discern the texture and the after-taste.
