Awards for Courvoisier XO
Also from Courvoisier Distillery
A smooth and supple Cognac made with spirit aged for between 20 and 35 years. It is made with some old Borderies Cognac, known for its woody style. The results are spicy, smooth as silk and very fruity.
Much more subtle
I have tasted a few fine cognac thanks to MOM's samples (Hine VSOP, Remy Martin XO Excellence...)Hine is a welter that can fight in heavyweight category thanks to his tremendous quality and both Hine and Remy Martin are complex and elegant but Courvoisier is superb. Not as complex and refined as RM maybe but it has this particular profile that i recognize also in VSOP version, with port wine, demerara rum, and orange in all forms (orange juice, orange peels, candied orange) as well as christmas cake, spices, and a faint idea of smoke to the very end...The decanter flacon is beautiful and what could i add ? I wish i could have this one in my cabinet...

This is DEFINITELY one for the sipping!! The flavours are extremely delicate, much more so than the Exclusif. Floral and fruity notes but not my thing really - I prefer a little more punchiness in the flavours. Having said that, a superbly blended cognac.
