Proof66 Notes

Camus Elegance cognacs are based upon the Borderies eau-de-vie spirit before aging--"the smallest cru at the appellation and one that is close to the hear to Maison Camus." The XO or "extra old" cognac spends more time in oak and so achieves a longer finish (or "remarkably long finish" in their words). They suggest looking for flavors of honey, chocolate, almonds, and hazelnuts.

Maison Camus was originated in concept in 1863 by Jean-Baptiste Camus when he created the La Grande Marque, which was a group of brandy producers. In 1866, this evolved to the founding of Maison Camus itself, achieving complete control and ownership. It has had today had 5 successive generations of Camus family ownership.

Not a good value here. For what you get I would be willing to pay 50 bucks for a bottle. Would like to do a side by side with the VSOP that I've also had because I really don't feel the XO was any better.

pay little more and drink their Borderies XO. you won't regret the few bucks but rather be glad you did. if they did not product Borderies XO, this one is a fine cognac by itself, but doesn't hold a candle to her sister when it comes to character.
