Maxime Trijol Ancestral Bottling Note
With classic Cognac rancio, Maxime Trijol's Ancestral is a truly stunning spirit. It offers spices, candied tangerine peel and hints of truffle. Absolutely beautiful stuff!
Just recieved this as a very special gift and that is exactly what it is.
At this price it has to be good and doesn't dissapoint. A full, thick, rich comlex flavour which I agree has a candied citrus to it but has a more difinitive cigar like finish that is oh so moreish.
As good as I have had.

I have tasted many cognacs, and last year I was lucky to visit the Trijol destillery.We were invited by Jean Jaques Trijol himself ans we had a full eavening at his main destillery. This open my mind for lical producers vs industrial producers. This is the far best cognac I have ever tasted. So rich so subtle. The age of this cognac is unbeliveable. People think XO is the ultimate cognac. XO needs only to be 6 years old, the youngest destill in this is 80 years old... Go and buy. In 20 years this is unachiveable.
