Polignac Cognac Extra Grande Champagne Launch 290813

[Event]

In all honestly Polignac cognac is not a brand of cognac that I’ve previously tried therefore it was with much curiosity that I attended the launch of the Polignac Cognac Extra Grande Champagne at Maison Francaise, Kuala Lumpur on 29 August 2013.

Here’s some info on the company that I managed to gather:

Prince Hubert de Polignac, heir to an illustrious family of the French aristocracy, started very young a brilliant career as a counselor handling trade for France. Recognized by his peers as a perfectionist, as well as diplomat with an open mind, he was a capable gentleman who was quite the connoisseur of cognac. Led on by a desire for conquest and adventure, the prince decided to collaborate with the House H. Mounier and their partnership gave birth to the Hubert de Polignac Cognac on 21 January 1947.

And the rest is history as since then Polignac cognac has been exported to many countries around the world and has garnered a name for being a quality champagne cognac.

The bottle didn't last long left at our table.  Voluptuous and harmonious, the Polignac style, conceived by the Prince, remains faithful to its tradition. Rich and strong, the XO Royal reveals candied citrus fruits and vanilla wood aromas, subtly enhanced by roasted and spicy notes.
