Nose: Spices, very fruity, oaky and tangy. Mixed peels, mainly orange.
Palate: Woody, dry, all sorts of intense caramel, very fruity, butterscotch.
Finish: Medium to long finish, tangy and toasty.
Whilst new to cognac, more of a single malt person, I tried this and you know what? It's my new favourite drink!!
I bought four bottles and one of the Grande Champagne, we are part way through bottle four, whilst the Grande Champagne is hardly touched.
Having tried a few above £100 cognacs, I still return to this as drink of choice.

I am relatively new to cognacs and wanted to see if my pallet is developed enough to appreciate the complex flavours, fortunately it does! I have tried many if the top XO's, some I have liked and some I have not. This one is really nice very fruity on the nose and not to spicy, I would defiantly recommend this cognac to friends!

Excellent cognac, a hell of a lot better than any cheaper or comparable priced version. I
have tried a number of Cognacs in the £120 price range however this is totally comparable and in some cases better! Buy
it, you'll see!
I have to limit it to "10"?
Among the best things I've ever tasted--no matter the circumstances.
