Harrod's Offers $15,000 Rare Cask Cognac
Harrods has just launched the long-awaited offering of Remy Martin's Louis XIII Rare Cask, comprising a blend of 1,200 ultra-exclusive cognacs aged between 40 and 100 years from a single cask (above). The rare spirit is expected to sell for about $15,000 a bottle. Featuring a formidable bouquet of wild mushrooms and woodsy notes followed by full, spicy tones and notes of gingerbread, wax, nuts and mint, Rare Cask "boasts a presence and density in the mouth that knows no limit." Each portion of Louis XIII Rare Cask is presented in a black crystal Baccarat decanter, hand-blown, hand-decorated, individually numbered and housed in an embellished metal coffret. Every detail of Rare Cask is designed to be a "celebration of the finest craftsmanship reflecting the pedigree of this incredibly rare and distinctive cognac."
