15 years after launching the internationally-acclaimed Extra Elegance Cognac, CAMUS proudly presents its latest limited release: Extra Dark & Intense.
Starting with a simple idea in mind - to create a BOLD and INTENSE expression of Extra – Cyril CAMUS asked the Cellar Master Patrick Léger to select the best barrels of Extra Cognac to follow a special ageing process. The chosen barrels are emptied of their precious Cognac and returned to the Master Cooper to be opened one by one, then gently heated to release the Cognac trapped inside the very grain of its oak staves.
These droplets of concentrated Cognac are intensely aromatic. This slight heating process is tailor-made, barrel by barrel. The Extra Cognac is then returned to these casks for a special finishing phase that has been named “Dark & Intense”. Gradually, the structure of the eaux-de-vie and the enhanced flavors of the cask merge together harmoniously. Rich and spicy, this Cognac emerges as a "one-of-a-kind" expression of Extra.
Founded in 1863, CAMUS is the largest Cognac house to still be entirely family-owned. For five generations, the CAMUS family has worked with boundless passion and patience to craft remarkable Cognacs capable of inspiring rare, intense emotions. Today Cyril CAMUS is heir to this rich heritage, maintaining the ancestral commitment to excellence and affirming the distinctive style of CAMUS Cognacs.
