Go To The Kickback with Remy Martin 1738 | Review
My bougie ass will show up to the kickback over dressed with the some damn liquor no one has ever had before, hopefully its no more than 10 people because I only brought one bottle. Lol this is only a 750 ml bottle at 80 proof, I mean if they all get a sip they can say Chaun turned them on to some new shit. With a price point of $53 they can go purchase their own bottle without hurting their pockets.
For the people that know me at the function are saying "This bihhhh didn't bring whiskey, about damn time." I decided to bring cognac, so let me drop some knowledge on you before you take a sip, cognac is made of grapes that only grow in certain regions in France, which is called the Cognac region. The wine that is used in cognac will be distilled twice in copper stills and then aged for at least two years in french oak barrels. This particular Remy Martin is a blend of eaux-de-vie aged in toasted barrels.
Whoever hand selected these grapes and barrels did a fantastic job because its incredibly smooth and aromatic.
Nose - It is very crisp on entry with a little bite from the alcohol. The grape notes hit you right as it hits the palate, ooo I love it.
Palate - It settles on the palate with small hints of grapes mixed with a nutty flavor.
Finish - On the finish you get creamy and toasted oak
As always I compared my thoughts to the official review
Generous notes of plum and fig marmalade rounded out by intense oaky notes of toffee and toasted bread.
The mellowness of butterscotch and baked spices with hints of dark chocolate.
Exceptionally round with a creamy aftertaste and a concentration of nutty aromas imparted by a careful blend of eaux-de-vie aged in toasted French oak casks.
My review doesn't match up 100%, but I think we can both agree that this is some good ish.
