Hine Rare V.S.O.P
This Cognac’s bottle looks more like an X.O. than a V.S.O.P., which is somewhat fitting, given that its profile is way more complex and luxurious than expressions typically encountered in this category. The perfumed nose serves bursts of fresh fruit, decadent prunes, and raisins. The palate is energetic but also delivers toasted oak and subtle baking spices.
