The Cognac

Old gold amber colour with mahogany highlights. Delicate combination of roasted woody notes, spices and cocoa. On the second nose come scents of pine resin, varnished wood and then candied fruit with some floral hints. On the palate, suppleness and harmony of flavours mastered by a very long ageing. Tobacco, spices and candied fruits elegantly finish this exceptional XO Elite.

Eye: Old gold.

Nose: dominant aromas of flora and mature woody character. The second nose is a succession of spices and sandalwood with a hint of pepper.

Palate: Silky and powerful, with notes of walnut, pecan pie and maple spices. Dry at first, then smooth with orange peel, a peppery and nutty finish.

Spices Vanilla Wooded Floral Nutmeg Walnut Iris Violet Orange Orange Zest Pepper Lemon
