Back in 2011, Rémy Martin released Louis XIII Le Jeroboam, a version of its acclaimed cognac presented in an amazingly beautiful special decanter. Only 100 of them were ever produced, with only a few actually being sold each year.
The exquisite decanter holds 3 liters of cognac -about four times as much as the standard Louis XIII decanter. Each piece was individually handcrafted by a team of nine crystal artisans at Cristallerie de Sevres, in France, and is made from eleven pounds of crystal, with its neck done in 24-carat gold.
The cognac itself is blended from 1200 eaux de vie, some as much as 100 years old, which is then aged in special centuries-old oak barrels called tierçons.
The aromatic nose contains notes of exotic candied fruit, which then turns into a delicate floral mix of fruit, flowers, and spices on the palate. The finish is quite long and leaves you with notes of jasmine, saffron, and cigar box.
