The Cognacs from Claude Thorin are going to wow you with nuance, rather than in-your-face flavor. His Grand Champagne expressions are incredibly pure and they're insanely inexpensive. Not only are they delicious and value-priced, they're also a bit outside the norm. Claude has also been toying around with single vintage, single varietal, and unsweetened expressions. We routinely bottle vintage spirits from Thorin that are completely without caramel and offer a glimpse into what pure Cognac tastes like, unmanipulated and free of impurities.
