Review: Landy VSOP Cognac

Review: Landy VSOP Cognac

Despite the Snoop Dogg endorsement (or, perhaps, because of it), the VSOP expression of Landy’s cognac is pretty pedestrian stuff. Harshly earthly and woody on the nose, it tastes strongly of apple with a finish that veers toward bitter. The finish is on the hard side, a reminder that this cognac is awfully young. (The company makes 7 expressions; this is its second youngest bottling.)

80 proof.

    I agree with this review. I’m not a cognac expert but know what I like. Landy VS tastes strongly of a wine base. It’s a bit like a highly fortified wine. Has a weak start and is not very satisfying at the end. I won’t buy this again.
