Bright bronze color. Dense, complex aromas and flavors of caramelized black walnuts and plantains, licorice, fig paste, and spice with a velvety, bright, fruity medium-full body and a smooth, complex, medium-long finish with suggestions of pipe tobacco, mocha, cola, and mineral dust with moderate oak. A well balanced and rewarding XO that will be fantastic with cigars.

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.
