Martell Cordon Bleu
The legendary cognac Martell Cordon Bleu is an international emblem of excellence. Ideal for special occasions, the taste of this French cognac is an explosion of spicy fruit notes and elegant richness.
Martell Cordon Bleu Extra
The legend grows. The Martell Cordon Bleu Extra cognac invites you to go beyond the ordinary. Its intense candied fruit and spices take the iconic cognac to new heights.
Aroma: ‘Tarte Tatin’, or apple pie, with notes of sweet spices like cinnamon. Then, fine notes of dried fruit and nuts, including apricot, raisin and almond.
Taste: Elegance, balance, mellow roundness, a sustained finish distinguished by notes of candied orange peel. Rich and luscious.
Martell Cordon Bleu Intense Heat
This “Intense Heat Cask Finish” limited edition Cordon Bleu bottling was released in November 2016. As with regular Cordon Bleu it is blended from over a hundred extra old eau-de-vie but is finished in casks that have been heavily charred – intensely heated if you will.
