Martell Blue Swift initial nose is characterised by exceptional freshness and great liveliness, with the harmonious pairing of notes of pear and citrus Â– lemon, grapefruit and tangerine peel Â– delicately heightened and rounded by notes of sweet spices (cinnamon, clove) and vanilla. This is very special cognac from the House of Martell. From the first pour, it’s clear that Martell Caractere is something special. Golden red in colour, each sip reminds you what a great cognac should embody. Boasting a strong punch of flavour with subtle notes of jasmine, dark pepper and tobacco, Martell Caractere is the perfect accoutrement to conclude any memorable evening.
