Delamain Cognac Reserve de la Famille could be the best Cognac… ever.

In the world of Cognac there are a few names that rise above the rest. Delamain is one of those names.

James Delamain was born in Ireland in 1738 where his Huguenot family had fled during the French religious conflicts. James returned to France and apprenticed in Cognac production. In 1759 he partnered with his father-in-law to form Maison Delamain. When James died in 1800, the company fell apart. But his spirit carried on through his son-in-law, Thomas Hine, who famously founded Hine Cognac. Then, in 1924 his grandson Henri re-established the house, limiting production to exclusively the finest Hors d’Age Cognacs (old beyond age).

Delamain Cognac Reserve de la Famille is NOT a blend of anything at all. It is a single barrel of Hors d’Age Cognac nearly sixty years old. And when Cognac is that old, it does not need to be to be cut to proof because of the natural drop in ABV over so many decades. It is what it is… an exceptionally old single cask Grand Champaign Cognac straight from the barrel at 43% ABV. Each is irreproducible and irreplaceable. It is a singular moment in time from six decades past recaptured in the present. In a word, it’s sublime.

Smartass Corner:
In the world of Cognac, VS (Very Special) means it’s at least two years old, VSOP (Very Special Old Pale) is at least four years old, Napoleon is a minimum of six years old, XO (Extra Old) is at least ten years old, and Hors d’Age covers everything older.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Wafts of history reach your nose with notes of florals, warm fruit, moist tobacco leaves, cedar, and spice cake.

The finish just leaves you wanting more.
