Claude Thorin K&L Exclusive VSOP Grand Champagne Cognac (750ml)
We are going to sell so much Claude Thorin Cognac at K&L this year that we expect it to be a household name with our customer base by 2015. Brandy drinkers searching for Grand Champagne quality at reasonable prices are going to be thrilled because there's nothing this good for this price on the American market -- and that's because we're buying directly from the estate. All of the new-make brandy from Claude Thorin goes into new Limousin oak for the first twelve months before being transferred into used russet barrels. The VSOP is older, and therefore richer than the standard VS with plenty of soft caramel, rich vanilla, and pure Grand Champagne fruit behind it. The result is stunning and we'd expect something of this quality to sell for $60 or even $70. At $44.99, it's almost too good to be true.
