The Rarest Bottle of $4,500 Baron Otard Cognac
The unique blend includes some of the rarest eaux-de-vie from the cellars of Château de Cognac, home of Baron Otard Cognac since 1795.
“Fortis et Fidelis”, the motto of the Otard family meaning “strength and loyalty”, is described as a fitting tribute to Baron Jean-Baptiste Otard who in 1795 acquired the only château in the town of Cognac knowing that it would offer the perfect ageing conditions for his Cognac.
Nosing Fortis et Fidelis reveals dominant plum fragrances and hints of walnut. Smooth spices, in particular nutmeg, intensify the combined aromas, while a sweet hint of candied orange mingles with a robust leather scent in the finish.
On the palate, the great maturity of Fortis et Fidelis rolls out a wealth of flavours. Delicate hints of prunes combine harmoniously with a subtle touch of ‘rancio’. Sweet, crystallised fruit lingers on the taste buds, while a pinch of spice caresses the palate.
A wooden case with a platinum lacquered finish has been used to house the carafe, which will set you back $4,500.
