In 1783, Martell was the first to ship its barrels of cognac to the United States. Today, Martell celebrates this history with another first : Introducing Martell Blue Swift, the first-ever Martell VSOP matured in French Oak casks and finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks. Martell’s signature process of distilling cognacs free of impurities leave it open to absorbing the rich aromatic tones from the bourbon cask. The result is Martell’s hallmark cognac style, characterized by delicate notes of candied fruit and plum, now complimented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and toasted oak from bourbon casks. Exceptionally smooth, with a rounded taste and unique character, this redefines the boundaries of cognac. For years, the Swift has been an icon for Martell. A bird with the rare ability to fly for days without stopping, the Swift is bound by nothing - traversing oceans and continent.

My Other Order
...My other order which was bought as the same time as this order still haven't ship yet. I am not impress with the delay. I preferred if the delay were brought to my attention when I place the order. I ordered many times and this is the first time that happens.
Martell Blue Swift is surprising good. The extra time of the VSOP in bourbon barrels smooths it out and yields a slight bourbon like taste to the finish. Like me if you enjoy masculine cognacs like Hennessy XO then you owe it to yourself to give this a try. Excellent value at 1/3 the price and blows Hennessy VSOP out of the water for smoothness and complexity. And importantly Wine Chateau's prices plus service are hard to beat.
I am not normally a dark spirits drinker but the Martell Blue Swift is smooth and sultry. I highly recommend it to anyone!
