I tasted this at the Duty Free in Heathrow Terminal 3.

Very nice, despite the price (though vastly improved due to recent exchange rates).

First time that I've tasted a vintage Cognac though I understand that now that they are allowed to do this, many more on the horizon. Unlike other cognac's this one's flavour profile is more focused. All teh dnsity for sure, but over a narrower band of flavours. Color is deep golden/wood. Nose is very elegant, cream brulee, vanilla, and exotic. Great mouthfeel as it just smoothly coats mouth and the flavours intensifies and then lingers and lingers. I was still tasting this as I was walking onto the plane! Lovely enough to bring one home!
