This may be because it is just after opening, but the alcohol smell of the top note is slightly strong. However, complicated unique fragrance of acidity and the sweetness spread when I take it in a mouth and remind well what an original grape was.
It has some kind of strongness, but on the other hand the mellow deep taste brings great happiness to the one drink it  tightly.

Daniel Bouju Empereur XO

Because Jean Fillioux Tres Vieux for the nightcap almost disappeared, I purchase the upper class of Daniel Bouju Brut de Fut Royal  which I sampled the other day, Empereur XO. Anything seems to be good after a meal to have with Chateau La Tour 61. Is it true?

Somehow it smells and I taste and sit down on wallop together. I find out that the complicated taste is kept deeply, but I lie in the inside too much, and you can't enjoy yourself not completely satisfactory. The complication by which the individuality hardens and changes with time from the beginning to the end can enjoy Brut de Fut Royal, but also the fragrance as well as time also weaken for this. I think the fragrance shuts itself up and doesn't leave by glass of narrow-mouth like Riedel, and even if I experiment on a wide-mouthed glass, it's same. I find out that there are no impurities certainly, but it's too pure. It can't help be severe evaluation as 25th vintage of Ground Champagne Cognac.

Cagnac Tasting Meeting

Tasting meeting of Daniel Bouju Brut de Fut Royal, KELT XO Tour du Monde and Leopord Gourmel Petit pack (3 kinds).

Leopord Gourmel is quite forced to say that(:-), Daniel Bouju and KELT are quite indeed. Below is my personal value.

I back away unintentionally, but a fragrance comes out of strength of getting out barrel 60 degrees to just stop by to the first share steadily when I just put it for a while, but when it's left for a while just as it is, the fragrance is coming out one after another.
The taste is also turning mellow one after another with that. The body which has no discouraged things at all even if I take water of course. The quality is being just pursued like fanaticism.
The cognac which spends time and enjoys itself.

It is really round and is mellow. The deep fragrance never runs out while being such gentleness that removed all inherent splinters. The strong bouquet opening in a mouth obviously pleases that it is Grand Champagne matured for a long term.

Original Joe

Quiet bar at Jiyugaoka in Tokyo. It's of 1200 kinds only by Scotch.
Cognac kinds were also that it's probable to some degree, and I went shamelessly.
The store where a talkative bartender of liquor with so-called experiences is here.We have served the cognac by which everything and the illusion seem to know a cognac lover though they don't hope that you put it so much, and something Mauret Lafage will be. What and, it's said that they treated with 200,000 yen for 1 serving at time with celebrity's celebration. This day, the special price (?).

It may be an intolerable bar for a Scotch lover.

BAR Epilogue

There are very little bars serving Cognac.

In such situation, they have 20-30 kinds of Cognac bottles at Ebisu town.
Around the Ebisu station, in calm place, the entrance is hard to look out, the floor is relatively large. It looks like "useful" bar.

As its largeness, there are 3 or 4 bartenders.

Sad to say, their Cognac is something like peculiar, hard to use commonly.

the bar is introduced here.
