Jean Fillioux 1953 Cognac 42% 350ml$923.00
This 1953 bottle of Jean Fillioux Cognac is about as extraordinary as it gets in the world of spirits. Few spirits of any description, let alone fine Cognacs such as this, ever get to reach such an age. The spirit has been resting in French Oak casks for an astounding 57 years, meaning it is truly a once in a lifetime bottle. This long aging process in the cellars of the Fillioux estate have produced some incredibly rich flavours, of full dried fruits, dark honey, old sherry, overripe bananas and flowers. This is a spirit that rewards patience with a glissando of aroma, flavour, and a finish that lasts and lasts. Comes complete with a beautiful wooden presentation box, and would make the ideal gift for any spirit lover. Note that due to the extreme scarcity of stock, this is a 350ml bottling. About the producer: Jean Fillioux is simply one of the very best when it comes to Cognac. The family owns a fantastic 63 acres vineyard in the heart of the Grande Champagne area since 1880. Since five generation they showcase how good a grower-producer Cognac taste, always light in style, fruit driven and elegant.
