2019 MARTELL BLUE SWIFT END-OF-YEAR LIMITED EDITION Martell Blue Swift Limited Edition

Martell Blue Swift Limited Edition

For Martell Blue Swift, a VSOP finished in Kentucky bourbon casks in homage to the House’s historic ties with the United States, the artist chose to magnify the Martell swift emblem on a background of vanilla, suggesting the distinctive smooth, sweet notes imparted by the barrels.

Martell Blue Swift is packaged in a gift box with an engraved metal julep cup.

The House of Martell also offers a suggestion for a creative serving ritual: revisiting a traditional Mint Julep with Martell Blue Swift.

2019 MARTELL BLUE SWIFT END-OF-YEAR LIMITED EDITION Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

To the eye
We can admire an elegant coppery color with golden glints.

On the nose     
We first notice gourmet aromas such as banana and caramelized pears. 
Then a subtle sweetness appears, and notes of vanilla & coconut mixed with spicy and menthol are revealed.

In the mouth

It is soft, round and gourmand.  We taste deep and fresh notes of ginger and white candied fruits such as plums.
We then feel the ample, smooth and long toasted oak finish from Kentucky Bourbon casks.

Serving
Martell Blue Swift is a new eau-de-vie de vin made with Cognac VSOP finished in Bourbon casks to enjoy on its own, over ice, lengthened with a mixer or as a cocktail.
