Martell Metaphore

There are fine cognacs and then there's Martell Metaphore, a 120 year old bottling that was chosen by Augustin Chapeau, first Cellar Master of the House, straight from the personal vineyards of Madame Martell. The recipe of Metaphore has been kept secret, but is described to have notes of "red fruits, almonds and pecans." Only one bottle of Metaphore will ever be sold and was available for sale in late March at the Masters Of Wines and Spirits in Singapore.
