Proof66 Notes

Comandon VSOP ("very superior old pale") cognac is their middle-tier product, which they say is a blend of over 60 different eau-de-vie. The average age of cognac is 10 years in Limousin oak where all the cognac is between 8 and 12 years. They are quick to note this is unusually old for a VSOP where a 6.5 year cognac technically qualifies as an XO... this provides the Comandon VSOP with unsuual intensity and flavor for the class.

Maison Comandon was founded in 1821 by the then 20yr old Pierre Comandon in Jarnac on the Charente River. (Both Pierre and, later, his son Louis were involved in Jarnac politics.) Family owned and independent to this day they are proud of the fact that all parts of their cognac production are on site and in their control. It is this fact that they feel gives their cognac a unique personality.

Other than the Louis Royer Preference, this is the best for the money, by far.
