Producer's Notes: A traditional Grande Champagne VSOP that is aged much longer than the standard 4.5 years in Limousin oak forms the base for this renowned Cognac. That base is then blended with much older Cognac lots to achieve the quality level required for a Kelt bottling.
After blending, the Cognac is shipped on the Tour du Monde: the legendary 3 month Ocean Maturation exclusive to KELT to draw out the most subtle qualities in the Limousin oak and round off the cognac in a beautiful and unique way. The process ensures Kelt releases are the smoothest on the market while presenting a remarkably broad library of tastes and aromas.
Kelt uses their extensive experience and stock of Limousin oak barrels in the most creative way to get the maximum effect from the Ocean Maturation. For the VSOP, Kelt relies on younger barrels of between 4-12 years of a particular quality and history. The exact composition and details are a closely guarded secret known to only two persons within the company. The blending and Tour du Monde puts this VSOP in a tasting age squarely between Napoleon and XO. Some experts even favor Kelt VSOP against other brands’ XOs.
