We tasted Pierre Ferrand Cognac - Reserve 1er Cru de Cognac at Meeting No. 74 on October 25, 2018. We rated it very highly at 3.18 out of 5. Pierre Ferrand Cognac - Reserve 1er Cru de Cognac ranks 4th overall in Cognac. At a street price of $113, this spirit is on the pricier side given the our rating of it.
Really nice and smooth. "summer notes" of fruit like fog and apricot. Very light woodsy and dried stone fruit note, pleasant. Light finish.
Best for sipping in front of the fireplace.
Sweet start with fruit notes ... lighter and smooth with hints of leather ... like a bull whip in June
Smells slightly peated, watered down maple syrup flavor
