"Homage has a brilliant amber-color tone with a sweet rum-raisin bouquet. Heavy vanilla tones come through on the initial attack. Smooth and sweet, the cognac has delicious rich notes of butterscotch and stone fruits. Lingering vanilla and clove tones stay with you on the finish." - Katrina Niemisto, Distiller.com
Eric Forget, HINE's Cellar Master, created Homage to honor Thomas Hine. The selection is a unique blend of three Early Landed Grande Champagne vintage cognacs (1984, 1986, 1987) matured in oak casks in the United Kingdom, together with some extra old cognacs aged in HINE's cellars in Jarnac. The cognacs used come primarily from grapes picked in Grande Champagne, blended with a few exceptional Petite Champagne cognacs. All are aged for a minimum of 20 years.
