Louis XIII de Rémy Martin's A Quest for A Legend

The great thing about cognacs? The value increases as it ages. In fact, Louis XIII de Rémy Martin is looking for the rarest {and one of the oldest} decanter in the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and India. 

The price? No biggie, it's just a trip to their estate in Cognac, France. That's just one of the many prices. More on this in a while. 

Some connoisseurs describe Louis XIII de Rémy Martin as the 'Rolls Royce of Cognacs'. Reading some of the reviews, it seems that the ones who have tried it felt some sort of spirituous transcendence. Seriously, I could feel their heightened pleasure through their prose. I am no cognac connoisseur, so I really can't describe it the way they do. The thing that I can tell you though is that it's delicious; really delicious.

Instead of the usual snifter, the Louis XIII de Rémy Martin should be savored using a special crystal glass designed by Cristophe Pillet. According to Louis XIII de Rémy Martin's Regional Director, Christophe Bourrie, the glass brings out the flavors further.

Just found out that all my photos of the Louis XIII de Rémy Martin's Rare Cask are pitiful. Anyway, the said cognac SRPs at...wait for it...more than $30,000!!

There are only 738 bottles of the Louis XIII de Rémy Martin's Rare Cask 42,6 {in reference to the 42.6% alcohol content} in the world! When asked if the number has any significance, Marie-Amélie Jacquet {4th generation of the Heriard Dubreuil - the family that manages the prestigious Remy Martin house} explained that there's really none. The rare cask {limousin oak barrel} where the exemplary liquid came from was able to fill up that much amount of decanter. The decanter, by the way, is made of black Baccarat crystal with a 22-carat rose gold neck.
