Martell Cordon Bleu Intense Heat is a fascinating result of alchemy, combining wood & heat to make a distinctive cognac never seen before. Created with a combination of craftsmanship, curiosity and pioneering spirit, the resulting blend enjoys an aromatic character and unsuspected cask finish.
The limited edition cognac sees the iconic blend compete its ageing in casks subjected to intense heat, known as “chauffe crocodile”, which uses a flame to “burn” the inside of the oak casks and release woody aromas as the eaux-de-vie interacts with the barrel.
The nose, at first vivid and full-bodied, has candied-fruit notes (apple, apricot and bush peach) framed by honey and a hint of brioche. The fruit character then gives way to attractive aromas of almond and roasted nuts, accentuated by the intense heat finish.
On the palate, the attack is rounded and generous with candied flavors. Delicate vanilla notes together with a nicely integrated touch of wood combine harmoniously with notes of candied fruit.
Martell has collaborated with mixologist Clothilde Lataille to craft the Intense Heat signature cocktail.
