Dark amber color. Aromas and flavors of toasted spice cake, buttercream, marzipan, apple custard, and spiced carob with a slightly chewy, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a nuanced, endless finish with accents of graphite, mocha latte, spiced pistachio in dark chocolate, ginger-peach tea, and cured meats. Exceptional length gives an indulger pause; sip slowly and contemplatively.

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.
