LONG AGEING FOR GREATER INTENSITY: The 100 eaux-de-vie assembled to create X.O were aged for a long time, some for 30 years, to give an unparalleled robustness. Maurice Hennessy gave the name X.O to this extraordinary “extra old” cognac.
DEEPLY COMPLEX AND RICH: Its intense and deep amber color is a sign of its strength. Its flavors of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its power and roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm, fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’s blending and its long ageing process.
WHEN APPRECIATION GROWS: At once deep and powerful, its character seduces connoisseurs who appreciate its undeniable modernity and constant revealing of layers of flavors, whether tasted neat, on ice or with a splash of still or sparkling water.
