The Comandon “Single Barrel” Collection created in collaboration with Palateur Imports is a new and innovative program which builds on the success of Comandon receiving only the highest accolades for its ultra premium cognacs. Comandon is a boutique cognac house founded in 1821 and have continuously focused on sophisticated and complex limited production cognacs. In 2012, Comandon hand selected about 3 exceptional barrels of which this is the latest release. These are 10 yr plus barrels essentially from the Grande, Petite Champagne and Borderies regions of Cognac in which the alcohol per volume was greater than 40% and between 41.5% and 46%. These special release Single Barrels are tasted and selected directly from the “paradis” which is, as opposed to the main cellars, a smaller “reserve bank” cellar which Comandon uses to better their standard blended cognacs to the highest level. The difficulty is to always keep a balance between the stock in the paradis and the increasing volume of production of Comandon’s VS, VSOP and XO, making it an honored privilege for us to have this type of access.
