Le Reviseur Vsop Review:

Nose (92): very aromatic with notes of oak, leather, black cherry and sweet vanilla. Grassy, earthy and slightly peppery.

Palate (93): spicy and intense with fresh, suttle oak, black pepper, leather, black and red berries, berries and mineral.

Finish (93): long, light and spicy with a gentle mix of dry herbs, pepper and sweet vanilla.

Comments: a complex cognac to be enjoyed neat or over ice with a cigar. Mildly sweet, fiery with some rustic notes but a quite charming drink. VSOP has a beautiful nose, spicy tapenade palate and offers a lot of nice touches on the finish.
