L'Or de Jean Martell owes its charactor to aged eaux-de-vie from the borderies which lend richness and complexity. The borderies, Cognac's most exclusive growth, yield the refined eaux-de-vie that are the hallmark of Martell. As they mature, thier candied-fruit notes offset the power and depth of the Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie. A blend of serveral hundred eaux-de-vie, some of which have aged over a century like a hidden treasure deep in the house cellars, L'Or de Jean Martell is the culmination of a quest for perfection lasting three hundred years.
Colour : an intense amber with hints of shimmering mahogany.
Nose : elegance and complexity of its aromas: orange peel and prune, with hints of cinnamon, cumin and gingerbread. When swirled, there follow venerable notes of Oriental forest : myrrh, agar wood, rancio, dry walnut.
Taste : at first, smooth and subtle. Then the flavours develop and the aroma, punctuated with notes of blackcurrant, rancio and dried fruits, becomes full-biodied and intense. The tasting culminates with an extraordinary cascade of notes of bitter orange peel, prunes, spices, gingerbread. Beautifully long finish.
Hennessy Imperial Paradis
Was : $2450 / Now : $2199
An exquisitely refined and elegant blend of more than 100 eaux-de-vie, aged for a minimum of 30 years and going back to the middle of the 19th century.
Inspired by the legend of an 1818 order of a unique blend of rare cognacs for Tsar Alexander I of Russia, Hennessy’s Master Blender Yann Fillioux has created Paradis Impérial in 2011.
A Subtle And Outstanding Elegance
Paradis Impérial's subtle elegance can be seen in its light amber colour and soft celadon reflections. The incomparable brightness and light hue of Paradis Impérial are due to its remarkable composition. Only the most exceptional eaux-de-vie with the finest texture have been selected; many years of aging have ensured the complexity and balance that can only be achieved through patient and lengthy maturation.
A Ballet Of Flavours
The nose reveals itself with the freshness of the first flowers of summer, as the most subtle perfumes waft through the air with a faultless finesse: spring essences, jasmine and orange flower swirl in a bouquet of remarkable intensity.
The floral notes return on the palate, unremittingly, continually revealing new tones of expression.
An Endless Finesse
This cognac of great stature is unlike any other, pushing the boundaries of finesse.
Comprised of eaux-de-vie aged between 30 and 130 years old, with a greater proportion of eaux-de-vie from our 19th century reserves than the Hennessy Paradis, one must enjoy Paradis Impérial slowly, in order to fully appreciate the finesse of every single drop.

The lasting legacy of our fifth Master Blender, Jean-Marc Olivier, L’Essence de Courvoisier is a sublime and precious harmony of extremely rare eaux-de-vie from the last two centuries. In many ways, this cognac encapsulates the spirit of Courvoisier itself, uniquely capturing our tradition, passion and innovation.
L’Essence de Courvoisier is a blend of extremely special and rare cognac reserves from the Grande Champagne and Borderies crus, which date back to early 1900 and add depth and harmony. These are complemented with cognacs from the later twentieth century, which mark our innovations in distillation and barrel-making techniques.
L’Essence de Courvoisier is a pioneering and contemporary blend for today’s cognac connoisseur and a true taste of luxury through the ages.
L’Essence de Courvoisier is a precious cognac that will ignite the senses. The nose starts with exquisite tasting of sandalwood and cigar leaves, followed by toffee, marzipan and fresh honey and finished with the delicate perfume of early summer blossom.
On the palate, liquorice, dried plum and apricot, all full-bodied and rich, build to a smouldering intensity that lingers on the palate seemingly forever.
