CAMUS Cognac for Dad

I received CAMUS Cognac products for review. All opinions are 100% mine and no compensation was given.

This Father's Day, give your Dad the gift of quality Cognac and ensure he has a relaxing and enjoyable day!

Most people know Cognac is from France, and many know about the Cognac region itself, with its best-known appellations (areas) of Grand Champagne, Petit Champagne, Bon Bois, and Fins Bois. The little-known Borderies appellation is where most CAMUS Cognacs are made . . . but even LESS known is that the Ile de Ré (Island of Ré), an island just off the west coast of central France, is ALSO a legal Cognac appellation.

Being an island, the vine-killing phylloxera louse never made it there in the late 1800s when it killed off literally all of the other vines on the European mainland. In addition, Ile de Ré is very small, so the grapes absorb the sea spray from the air, giving the Cognac a salty, maritime quality. It is really delicious, is PERFECT chilled, and appeals to both Scotch and Cognac drinkers.

CAMUS (pronunciation: “Kah-moo”) is the last independent, family-owned Cognac house and 5th largest worldwide; in 2013 they are celebrating their 150th anniversary.

Check out these three great CAMUS Cognac products that make a great gift for Dad this year:

Ile de Ré Fine Island Cognac

This impressive Cognac offers a beautiful yellow and golden color. With light and fresh iodine notes and a lively, oak and salt finish this Cognac is perfect neat, on the rocks, with a dash of water or chilled. A specific aging process, with high humidity levels, imparts a pleasant roundness to this Cognac. (SRP. $49)

Ile de Ré Double Matured Cognac

This golden amber Cognac is like no other. With a unique age technique in two distinct stages; first aging in a cellar with high humidity and second aging in “toasted barrels,” this Cognac produces a fruity and smooth taste. Ile de Ré Double Matured is a distinctive Cognac with spicy, marine, crystallized fruit notes and a smoky finish. (SRP. $69)

Ile de Ré Cliffside Cellar Cognac

This amber-colored Cognac carries slight hints of orange. This distinctive Cognac has indications of vanilla, spice and traditional “rancio charen tais.” Providing marine and iodine characters, this Cliffside Cellar has a specific aging period in the Fort de la Prée cellar located 10 meters away from the Atlantic Ocean. (SRP. $99)
