Flavored Cognac's Launch

I've become more and more of a fan of Cognac of late and have had an encounter or two with JC (Jacques Cardin) VSOP Cognac though I haven't had a chance to try it.

They're rolling out their product nationwide now and not only do they have their standard Cognac, but they are also launching two flavored Cognacs, Jasmine and Apple.

Created in Cognac, France, JC is made with a selection of Ugni-Blanc grapes chosen with special attention paid to the soil of the vineyards. A combination of these grapes adds complexity to JC. As JC is a VSOP (Very Special Old Pale), it is created with a blend of cognacs, each aged at least four years. This special blend, developed by the cellar master, is then aged in small French oak casks. It spends its life in contact with wood, developing aromas of wood tannins.

The 750ml sells for US$34.99 and you should see them on most store shelves by August.
