Review: Meukow Cognac VSOP

Meukow is the Cognac with the panther on the bottle. Or rather, in the bottle, part of the bottle.

There’s more to it than that, I’m sure, but I don’t know a whole lot more about it than that — except that the house dates back to 1862. This VSOP is reportedly aged for five years before bottling and includes eau de vie from all six growing regions in the Cognac area.

Gimmicky bottle aside, the brandy has ample merit. A bit sultrier and more brooding than the typical VSOP, Meukow offers a nose of toasted oak balanced by dark chocolate, incense, and a hint of raisin. It’s unmistakably built in the style endemic to Cognac, mixed florals and gentle linen notes giving way to a lingering note of chocolatey mocha, vanilla, and a pinch of spice. It’s not overwhelmingly complex, but at the same time, it never disappoints.

80 proof.
