D'Ussé VSOP Cognac
Fans of hip-hop might be interested in D'Ussé VSOP Cognac, which has been endorsed by no less a figure than legendary rapper-entrepreneur Jay-Z.
For those who are unfamiliar with the terms, cognac means that this particular brandy was produced in the region surrounding the French town of the same name, while VSOP stands for, "very superior old pale," meaning that it has been aged for at least four years in oak barrels.
Combined with two centuries of expertise and experience, these standards ensure a superior smoothness that blends spices with fruits and flowers, thus proving that Jay-Z's choice to invest in the brand shows his usual business panache.
On the nose, it reveals a powerful bouquet, rich in woody notes that are layered with touches of cinnamon and floral notes.
