4 Stars - F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal
Established in 1895 by Samuel Beau, the family is one of the oldest cognac distillers in Segonzac, the heart of the Grande Champagne region. He bottled and sold his cognac under his own name, but by 1914, his son Paul had taken over the family business and sold most of their stock to other companies. It wasn't until 1977 that the family once again began to produce cognac under the Beau name, this time naming it after Paul to honor all he had done for the company.
Aged for 15 years, Paul Beau VSOP offers a delicate, yet pronounced nose of baked apple, honey and cedar, backed by light floral and mineral notes. The smooth, refined palate opens with savory notes of caramel and toasted marshmallow that merge with sweet, spicy hints of vanilla, maple and oak on the finish.
