Tasting Notes

We've discovered a tiny remaining allotment of rare, single-cask Borderies Cognacs. Barrels #22 and #151 present a particularly interesting comparison. Both were distilled in 1992 and separated at birth. Barrel #22 found its way into a very humid cellar, while barrel #151 was aged in a dry cellar. They were bottled 22 years later at cask strength and without chill filtration or coloring/sugar. The result is an incredible study in how Cognac ages and the effects of the aging environment. Barrel #22, the Wet Cellar, offers unparalleled elegance. At a cask strength of 41.7% ABV, it is supremely soft and supple. The flavors range from crème brulée and brioche to rose hips and jasmine. Not only is unadulterated Cognac rare, but single-cask Borderies of any age is especially hard to come by.

    It's virtually impossible to pick a favorite between these two extraordinary Cognacs. The Wet Cellar bottling is supremely enticing; every nosing reveals something different and begs to be tasted. A complex aromatic profile of cacao, vanilla, caramel, jasmine, and crème brulée is complemented by the sweet/savory undercurrent of rich, earthy humus compost that will pique the interest of any gardener. A burnt orange peel note shines as you go back to the glass, then a tiny hint of varnish on the next nosing. Let's taste: a more complex fruit salad on the palate—banana esters and a rainbow of ripe stone fruits. Florals galore, including jasmine, rose hip, and lilac. Caramel and vanilla are reprised from the nose, while citrus and dark chocolate show a nice pairing. A bit of toasty oak slides into a lengthy finish. It's perfectly balanced—cool and mellow with a little heat of cracked pepper like a fine culinary dish. When the quality is at this level, it's a highly convincing argument for vintage single-cask Cognac.
