There was a look and a feel to tattoo that wasn’t very common until I introduced my style using little decorations and little stories to create its own kind of universe. On Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels design, I recreated the story of the aging process working with the oak barrels and the oak trees.

VSOP AGED IN RED BARRELS LIMITED EDITION BY DR WOO

For its 2019 gifting collection, Maison Martell launched an unprecedented collaboration with four international creative talents. Hailing from diverse domains and cultures, they are united by a spirit of audacity which led them to forge their own path to success – something they share with Maison Martell and its founder Jean Martell.

Dr. Woo, famed for pioneering the single-needle technique to create tattoos of breath-taking precision and finesse, revisited Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels. His uncompromising attention to detail is revealed in his design, which combines Martell’s signature blue with warm redish tones evoking the aging process. His audacious and painstaking approach to his craft mirrors that of Maison Martell, which has been creating innovative expressions of cognac for more than 300 years.

TASTING NOTES

A perfect harmony of luscious fruit aromas and refined oak overtones.
 
Aspect
A warm copper color with glints of gold, giving it a uniquely luminous appearance.

Nose

At first, the bouquet is round and fresh, with intense fruit notes. The aromas of fresh yellow stone fruits, like cherry plum and baby Reine-Claude, are gently coated by subtle notes of oak. Once in motion, the power of the aromas grows and gains depth, with fleshier fruits such as apricot or vine peach chiming in.

Mouthfeel 

A full, broad attack that unveils the same intense fruity tones—plums,
peaches  and  apricots. The fruity flavors are marvelously enhanced by delicate notes of sweet spices from the wood of the red barrels—the very same barrels that create that perfect balance between the expressiveness of the  eaux -de-vie and refinement of the spiced notes.

Martell VSOP Matured in Red Barrels—fruitiness, finesse, and utter delicacy.
