Remy Martin VSOP is a cognac that shows its age and wears it well. It is a very classy, elegant champagne cognac that is really good value for money when compared to the rarer, more expensive brands. It is exceptionally smooth and velvety with a complex yet unimposing flavour. There is no youthful freshness in Remy Martin’s V.S.O.P., but rather mature scents and flavors of leather, spice and bittersweet chocolate. Because of its darker complexity, it might not a prime candidate for mixing and it better suited for an introspective sipping session. A simple Rémy Martin V.S.O.P., ginger ale and lime, however, works really well.
