Several of the vintages employed in creating Courvoisier L’Esprit date all the way back to the Napoleonic era, and Master Blender Jean-Marc Olivier has been certain to treat these storied constituents with the respect they deserve. The result is a spirit that boasts flavors of apricot, honey and Havana cigars. It is presented in a hand-cut, Lalique crystal decanter that is an objet d’art in its own right.
