.camus – vsop elegance


CAMUS VSOP Elegance is a Cognac rich in mellow, fruity aromas. For the VSOP Elegance, Maison CAMUS selects aromatic eaux-de-vie partially distilled on the lees, including some from our famous Borderies cru, to strengthen the aromatic richness of this Cognac as it ages.”

Nose: Like so many cognacs, this also starts with the sweet scent of glucose syrup, slowly transcending into a floral, rose petal note. On top of that, I get fresh citrus zest of grapefruit and a handful of nutmeg and mace, ending with an earthy smell, close to that of an old bookstore.
Palate: sweet, thin treacle and honey with Turkish delight at first, then spicy of mace and nutmeg again, floral from rose petals and the citrus note of grapefruit zest.
Finish: medium long and honey sweet. Again the glucose syrup and rose petals, and a touch of spicy bay leaf.

Conclusion: Rather likeable. The sweetness is quite dominant, but not as overly present as with some other cognacs I have tasted these last couple of days.
