Courvoisier Cognac recently announced the launch of the Courvoisier Avant-Garde Series with the release of Bourbon Cask Edition bottle. Available for a limited time, the latest expression is made of VSOP liquid finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks to offer a smooth yet bold taste, the company says.

"We're thrilled to release Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition, a first-of-its-kind expression for the House of Courvoisier," said Stephanie Kang, senior marketing director for Courvoisier, in a statement. "With the help of our local artisans and winegrowers in our hometown of Jarnac, we were able to develop an innovation that is sure to appeal to cognac and bourbon drinkers alike."

Courvoisier Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition is the first expression within the Avant-Garde series to be released for a limited time. The latest expression begins with the brand's VSOP blend that is then aged to taste in Kentucky Bourbon barrels. This extra aging creates an elegant and velvety finish with tasting notes of vanilla, honey and sweet marmalade, the company says. Avant-Garde Bourbon Cask Edition will be available at a suggested retail price of $39.99 for a 750-ml bottle.
