I continue my little cognac adventure. Please bear with me, I will get back to tons of lovely whisky very shortly!

The Destillerie Tessendier Cognac Park Millesime Fins Bois 1974 is an old cognac, although a specific age is not stated. The back label states that this is a release limited to 344 bottles, which I assume to mean it is a single cask. You can read up on the company Destillerie Tennsendier & Fils here.

The Destillerie Tessendier Cognac Park Millesime Fins Bois 1974 will be available in Norway on June 21 at NOK 2044 (11059701).

Nose: Oh wow, this is sooo refined and complex and playful. Light as a feather. Various dried fruits as well as hints of citrus, mix with caramel, grapes, vanilla and a hint of oak.

Taste: Very rich. It dances on the tongue. Piruettes of red berries, caramel and vanilla ice cream, white pepper, cinnamon and hints of oakiness.

Finish: Very long finish. Continues much as it started, but it appears drier with time, and a bit more oaky.

Comment: Steady as a rock, solid as .. well .. a rock. Easy drinking .. so in that respect, not at all like a rock. Anyways, it is a damn fine cognac.

Score 93/100
