Collection Cognac – Artisan Vintage
Mushroom, orange peel nose. Winy on the palate, lighter and tenser than that of 1978. Such tension makes it more elegant.
"Mature nose with notes of nut, leather, nougat and something of an Amontillado... Very spicy on the palate with vanilla and cedar notes, long and rich finish," Andreas Larsson, 2008.
For each exceptional year, HINE sets aside casks specifically for vintages.
They are aged in 18th century cellars in Jarnac under two locks and keys - one belonging to HINE and the other kept by the Cognac authorities.
