Martel Blue Swift is a Martell VSOP, which is eaux- de-vie matured in French Oak casks, what makes it different from cognac is that it is finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks, making it an eaux-de-vie-de-vin. “Martell’s signature process of distilling cognacs free of impurities leave it open to absorbing the rich aromatic tones from the bourbon cask. The result is Martell’s hallmark cognac style, characterized by delicate notes of candied fruit and plum, now complemented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and toasted oak from bourbon casks.” The fruity VSOP intersects with the smokey vanilla notes of the American oak casks, followed by fruity brandy. On the nose there are “gourmet aromas” of banana and caramelized pears. The raisin-plum notes of brandy pair nicely with the oaky notes of whiskey. This is followed by sweet notes of vanilla and coconut, and menthol. The mouthfeel is softly rounded with fresh notes of ginger and white candied plums. The finish is long and smooth, rich with the toasted woodiness from Kentucky Bourbon casks.
