Distilled on the lees to enhance the original flavors of the eaux-de-vie from which it is produced, CAMUS Ile de Ré Double Matured is the result of a unique aging process. It is first matured on Ile de Ré in a damp cellar, after which the eaux-de-vie are transported to Cognac and placed in very old barrels which have been toasted specifically to give the cognac structure and a smoky flavor. The combination of these two aging stages creates a sophisticated, original Cognac. Ideal straight, over ice, served with fish or spicy dishes. CAMUS Ile de Ré Fine Island Double Matured is a bold, distinctive Cognac with unmistakably maritime tones. On the palate it displays a perfect balance between smoky notes and touches of candied fruit with a hint of honey.
Aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months (a relatively short spell for the Cognac universe), this honey-hued spirit still boasts bold aromas of vanilla and pear. The flavor profile is sweet, with lots of vanilla, buttered toast and a surprisingly long finish, touched with baking spice.
