Louis XIII Cognac
AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER...OR SO I'M TOLD.
Each decanter takes 4 generations of Cellar Masters over 100 years to craft. "LOUIS XIII is a wave of sensations that carries you away" says Cellar Master Baptiste Loiseau.
This is one of those bottles folks are not super eager to burn through, so they tend to keep it pretty high up on the shelf and out of reach. Suffice it to say that when people's judgement is clouded enough to offer me a dram of this fine cognac, I've also already had a few myself. So, sadly, while I've tasted Louis several times, I honestly can't remember at all how it tastes. I've been told I really liked it.
So, for that reason, I recommend you reach for Louis on planned occasions and reach earlier than later in the night.
For over a century, LOUIS XIII has been synonymous of refinement the world over. It has been a witness to many of the most significant events of our age: it was exhibited at the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1900 and soon established itself as a symbol of French taste and sophistication. In the years that followed, it captivated the royal courts of Europe and became a permanent feature at the most prestigious hotels. And that proud legacy endures todays, as LOUIS XIII continues to transcend Time.
