Cognac Jenssen Arcana
Top 10 Cognacs
Origin: Grande Champagne, France; $7,000 (700 ml)
Arcana derives its flavor first from the chalky soil of France’s Grande Champagne region, then from the century that it spends aging in casks of French oak. Jenssen uses this Cognac primarily as an enhancer to its more expensive blends; therefore, single decanters of Arcana are available only upon individual request. If you have the budget for such refined indulgence, Jenssen will reward you with not only the cedar and blond tobacco flavorings of one of the world’s most exclusive spirits, but also with a hand-blown crystal decanter and ornate wooden shrine in which to store it.
