Brilliant copper color. Aromas and flavors of spiced raisins, figs and dried fall fruits, toffee, hint of licorice, and smoked nuts with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a relaxed cedar warehouse, caramel and molasses, and delicate spice finish. A pleasant easy drinking XO Cognac.

X.O. (or extra old) Cognacs require minimum of six years aging for the youngest cognac in the blend, with the average age running 20 years or older. All Cognac houses maintain inventories of old vintage Cognacs to use in blending these top of the line brands. The oldest Cognacs are removed from their casks in time and stored in glass demijohns (large jugs) to prevent further loss from evaporation and to limit excessively woody and astringent flavors.

In 2016, according the BNIC, the official Cognac regulatory agency, the minimum component age requirement for X.O. Cognac was raised to 10 years.
