Camus Extra Dark and Intense Cognac
Starting with a simple idea in mind – to create a BOLD and INTENSE expression of Extra – Cyril CAMUS asked the Cellar Master Patrick Léger to select the best barrels of Extra Cognac to follow a unique ageing process. The chosen barrels were emptied of their precious Cognac and returned to the Master Cooper to be opened one by one, then heated with open flame to release the alcohol still trapped inside the very grain of its oak staves. This heating process is tailor-made, barrel by barrel. The Extra Cognac is then returned to these casks for a special finishing phase that has been named “Dark & Intense”. Gradually, the structure of the eaux-de-vie and the enhanced flavors of the cask merge together harmoniously.
