Hine Rare VSOP is a blend of eaux-de-vie coming exclusively from the Grande and Petite Champagne with about 60% of the blend being Grande Champagne.

The youngest eaux-de-vie in Hine Rare VSOP is about 6 years old but some reach up to 12 years, the average being around 8 years.

On the nose, Hine Rare VSOP reveals fruity and floral aromas with hints of honey and jasmin.

On the palate, it shows great smoothness with the traditional finesse of all Cognac blended by Thomas Hine.

Review: I was looking for a special bottle of cognac for my mum's birthday and saw this Hine - Rare VSOP and decided to purchase. I have to say I have managed to have a drink of it and it tastes great and my mum loved it so much so that she is about to run out :-) The bottle looks as good as the cognac tastes which is smooth and sweet with a mellow after taste. It will make a fine addition to any drinks cabinet.
Great Brandy

Review: I think this Champagne Cognac is quality - for the price you pay I recommend it as a Sunday after Dinner drink with a Humble Cigar such as a Hamlet or for the more extravagant - a King Edward - really nice to adourn any table for a small after dinner drink - real quality.

Review: What a bottle; truly stunning. Firstly, the bottle itself: Very well presented in a box with a lovely bottle. The whole package is very good looking. On the nose: Lovely and warm, with a hint of vanilla (at least that\'s what I got). On the palate: Smooth as you\'d like (at least as I\'d like!) and a lovely full flavour with a sweet aftertase, and again, a hint of vanilla. My pick of what\'s on offer (of what I\'ve tried). Buy a bottle now, thank me later ;)

Review: Being new to drinking brandy/cognac, I am on a voyage of discovery,my fantastic voyage as I call it, starting with basic mouthwash and going froward in quality, although not an expert by any means. I now know what I like,and this brandy is wonderful. An aromatic nose, smooth to the palate and a warm afterglow, it really comes close to XO. Great value for money and does not disappoint.

Review: This is my favourite VSOP. It is amazing how smooth it is for a VSOP in fact I would say that it is unfair that it is only labelled a VSOP as it is a bridging gap between VSOP and XO. If you can't stretch to an XO buy this bottle of brandy - if you don't like it post it to me!

Review: The VSOP's from the major Cognac houses tend to be of an acceptable quality (unlike your typical VS, which is suitable only for mixing), but nowhere near as impressive as the XO's. Not so for Hine's offering, which does not give the impression of being "whatever we have left over that's not good enough for our expensive blends".
The Rare is a fairly heavy, full bodied Cognac, with the floral notes being for decoration rather than substance. Nonetheless, it is extremely smooth with a long aftertaste and has little to no bite to it -- in this respect, it is more pleasing even than Hine's older and more expensive offerings.

Producer Information

In 1791 young Thomas Hone left his home in Dorset, England to seek his fortune in France. He chose the Cognac region, perhaps because his family, living on the coast, had engaged in the common practice of smuggling cognac.
This was the time of the Revolution in France, and Thomas was arrested as a spy and imprisoned in the ancient Château of Jarnac.
He was soon freed again and married Françoise Elisabeth, whose father owned a cognac company in Jarnac. He had married into a business that was to become his career and his obsession. He became a noted connoisseur, respected for his integrity and famous for the demands he made on his suppliers.
Over the years, he raised the art of making cognac to new heights, continuing to develop the business, to which, in 1817, he gave its present name: Thomas Hine & Co.
When he died, in 1822, he left more than a prosperous business. His legacy was a name already known and appreciated around the world for the exceptional quality of its cognacs.
In certain years, when the favourable climate has yielded an exceptional harvest, Hine sets aside a cognac drawn exclusively from the Grande Champagne region.
Experience, handed down over the centuries, enables Hine to detect the qualities that will create a true vintage cognac.
Over the years, Hine has built up an unrivalled collection of old vintages, of which a limited quantity is released each year.
For any given vintage, the climate of the year and the storage conditons influence the taste and the ageing process of the cognac, making each vintage unique...
The cognacs, never sold at less than 20 years of age, are especially prized by connoisseurs.
