A scotch whisky distiller, when asked recently if he made any blends, was gloriously sniffy and dismissive of blended whisky. It would have been interesting to see and hear what he would have made of the Johnnie Walker Directors Blends, which I got to taste last Thursday (November 28) in London.
D’Ussé (pronounced dew-say) VSOP spends at least four and a half years in French oak.
The product is to launch in New York in June and will roll out across the US by September.
The cognac is available in 750ml, with a suggested retail price of $44.99.
It is made in Chateau de Cognac, France, which Bacardi claims has "unique dry and humid cellars".
