The L’Essence Year of the Horse comes in a decadent Baccarat decanter engraved with an image of Napoleon on his horse. The decanter is given a further touch of elegance with a soft brown leather harness, which lines its edge.
L’Essence is a result of exceptional blends combined with the rarest eaux-de-vie from the centuries old Courvoisier Paradis cellar. The legacy of Courvoisier’s fifth Master Blender, Jean-Marc Olivier, the cognac boasts notes of sandalwood and cigar leaves, followed by toffee, marzipan and honey from fresh mountain flowers. It blends a full-bodied and rich palate of liquorice, dried plum and apricot that builds to a smouldering intensity and ends with a subtle perfume of May blossom.
The limited edition decanter is topped with an ornate crystal stopper inspired by Napoleon’s signet ring that he only bestowed upon his commanders who displayed extraordinary acts of power and bravery.
