During winter, wines were left outside and the liquid left over separated from the ice creating a rather harsh and primitive distillate. Fris takes modern column-still vodka and undertakes a special and more sophisticated freeze distillation to help remove oils and other impurities.">
For Martell VSOP aged in Red Barrels, our cellar master selected only these very rare "red fine grained oak barrels" to age this cognac, highlighting Martell specific ageing style.
A perfect harmony of luscious fruit aromas and refined wood overtones.
A warm copper colour with glints of gold, giving it a uniquely luminous appearance.
Nose: At first, the bouquet is round and fresh, run through by intense fruity notes. The aromas of fresh yellow stone fruits, like cherry plum and baby Reine-Claude, are gently coated by subtle mellowed woody notes. Once in motion, the power of its aromas grows and gains depth, with fleshier fruits such as apricot or vine peach chiming in.
Mouthfeel: In the mouth, it has a full, broad attack and unveils the same intense fruity tones – small plums and honeymoon peaches and apricots. The fruity flavours are marvellously enhanced by delicate notes of sweet spices from the wood of the russet barrels – the very same barrels that create that perfect balance between the expressiveness of the eaux-de-vie and refinement of the spiced notes.
Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels – fruitiness, finesse and utter delicacy.">
You’ll really taste the effects of that white oak, beautifully complemented by sweet pear, tropical pineapple, ripe banana and citric sparkle. This is a cask-strength single malt that represents the skill of our team and the tradition of The Glenlivet. And unlike most modern whiskies, this one is non-chill filtered, so it’s very richly textured. It’s an expression that will appeal to the intrepid whisky lover.">
