I am new to Cognac but it is has always been a drink that I have been intrigued by so decided to test my palate with a few samples. After tasting some of the top XO's I found that I enjoyed the smoother Cognac's like this particular one. I have tasted 8 different Cognacs 7 of those XO's and this one has to be my favourite. The nose is so fruity and floral with honey and a little spice. On the palate I got soft fruit, light honey vanilla and caramel. The finish was not spicy like some of the other XO's and it left a glorious warm feeling on the back of the throat. I think I have found the Cognac for me, I will be ordering a bottle for Xmas.
