Cognac Frapin Millésime 1992

Cognac Taste Master 2020

The Cognac Masters 2020 was the last Masters to be held in person before the Covid‐19 pandemic struck – and what a memorable tasting it turned out to be.

The competition was packed with Master‐quality expressions, and no bottle was awarded less than a Gold medal. Cognac Frapin Millésime 1992 was a standout entry on the day, scooping a Master in the Vintage – Single Cru flight.

It was enjoyed for its “fruitiness, versus dry spiciness and savoury quality”, which added “extra depth and complexity” to the spirit. Judge Evan Prousaefs, bar manager at The Leaf & Cane, said: “This is a beautifully crafted Cognac.”

The 1992 vintage was aged for 26 years and is limited to 3,000 bottles. It was made entirely from eaux‐de‐vie from the Grande Champagne cru in Cognac, France.
