Jean Fillioux Balzac XO Bottling Note

Fillioux cognacs are aged solely in Limousin casks with no added boisé (boiled down wood chips added to give a sense of maturity). Instead, the spirits are aged using time-honoured traditions. This is a great XO distilled from Balzac grapes (also known as Mourvèdre).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is of winter spice and sultanas with vanilla toffee, peels, marzipan and peppery oak. The palate is nutty and creamy with notes of buttery vanilla spice, plenty of wood. The finish is warming with marzipan and oak.

Jean Fillioux Balzac XO Reviews

No boisé? You have my attention!

I have to be skeptical about an XO getting a single negative review. Also, I am mainly a single malt enthusiast who loves cognac but avoids them usually due to being overpriced and heavily colored with artificial colorants - E150 and boisé ! And an underdog using less common grape gets negative review? And the reviewer tries to use whisky as pejorative? Either it's a cheap shot from the "big ole' boys" or the reviewer doesn't know much and only wants a "smooth" spirit. I'll be back to review if I manage to find a bottle to taste!

Too young for an xo.

For sure less than 10 years, it qualifies for an xo yes (6 min), but the alcohol smell is too strong, harsh and dry, more similar to a whisky. Avoid.
