“The most perfect example of an eau-de-vie that reveals itself like Russian nesting dolls. Once you have started you can’t stop yourself looking ever further.”
Andreas Larsson, world best sommeliers 2007
“Dark amber colour and of crystal brilliance, spicy aromas of pepper on the nose elegant with layers of complexity on the palate. Confirms its complexity with a long slightly hot finish. Well-structured cognac outstanding quality.”
Initial notes of old oak and roast pear with overtones of almond, followed by nougat and ‘rancio’ notes.
Complex and impressive length with a slight burning sensation on the finish. Exceptional aromatic richness resulting in a lovely complexity. The very best of our range of blends.
A sumptuous bouquet with a rich and complex aromatic palette combining green pepper, fresh apple, spices, tobacco, roast coffee beans, cocoa and ‘rancio’.
A full-bodied and mellow palate with subtle touches of anise, violets and licorice. Long aftertaste of smooth honeyed notes. Elegant, clean and well-balanced with excellent length.
Jon Bonné, San Francisco Chronicle
“Intense fruit and earth, with mango, pine needle, deep loam (terreau) and fine wood. A hint of Sherry-like rancio, giving way to a huge burst of flavour, but never losing its eloquence”
Mike Steinberger, United States
Wine and Spirits Critic
“Buttery-smooth elixir with a bouquet of honey, nuts, baking spices, flowers and mineral.”
Initial oak aromas lead to vanilla, citrus notes with a finish of roast almonds and nougat.
A full-bodied bouquet with overtones of caramel and secondary notes of black tea, honey and ancient oak. A rich and full palate with good length and elegance.

Editor of the Spirit Journal
“Attractive amber/honey hue. Ideal purity. The first sniff of black pepper and old oak gives way to spicy, floral notes. Then resin, wet slate and dried herbs. Bold aroma, much virility. The palate entry is bittersweet savour.”
Supple and smooth, the freshness of its bouquet is accompanied by scents of vanilla and basswood.
Easy palate with candied fruit notes. Good balance between the sharpness of a young cognac and the full-bodied roundness of a matured blend.
THE AUDRY QUALITY
Since its inception, quality has always been a priority for the Audry House. Their cognacs are a blend of eaux-de-vies gleaned exclusively from Petite and Grande Champagne regions. The specific soil where these grapes are grown offers great potential for a long aging process, allowing rich and complex notes to develop. The longer the aging process, the more voluptuous the finish, inviting a complexity based on powerful flavours that are balanced out with lighter notes. The progression of the tasting allows one to fully appreciate the beautifully smooth body of this exquisite tipple.
When Aristide Boisson passed away in 1950, he left precious casks of eaux-de-vies forgotten in the family cellar. There, they remained patiently until 1984, when Bernard Boisson, his son, discovered these precious casks. With 40 years to develop under perfect conditions, this priceless collection of eaux-de-vie has matured into an exceptional and rare treasure.
