Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal

Rémy Martin 1738

Got to blend in with the times. Which is why I decided to go for a cognac and embrace hiphop this week. Having tried the VSOPs offerings of both Rémy and Hennessy before, I decided to try something else. The XOs are a bit prohibitively priced, so this 1738 variation of Rémy was the only choice. Plus, the liquor store had a gift packing with a leather hip flask. How appropriate!

The history goes that in 1738, Louis XV of France granted Rémy Martin a warrant to expand his vineyard. Hence the name. There is more history associated with their Varietal which google could give you, if you are so interested.

Notes — spices, dried fruits and hint of flowers on the nose. Smooth on the palette with hints of pepper and cinnamon which finishes off with chocolate and tobacco. Or as avataram once noted, pretty much like ‘ARR suganda paaku’.

Overall, a smoother version of their VSOP.

    As much as your posts are interesting to read, one wonders what can be inferred of them for teetotallers.

    theriyalaye.. I don’t know if anyone can infer anything from these. Now that you asked, I thought about it. May be the next time someone compels you to drink, you can get all uppity and say you won’t drink the trash they are having.

    don’t need your posts to help me say that, I reckon!
