Cigar Blend XO offers a mahogany colour with copper highlights. The bouquet reveals mellow notes of vanilla and dried fruits, walnuts and hazelnuts, thanks to extended ageing in new oak barrels and the age-old expertise of the Frapin family. Very smooth, complex, balanced, subtle aromas of aged port mixed with the scent of wooden cigar boxes, typical of a Grande Champagne cognac distilled over lees.
Balance – roundness – richness. Cigar Blend XO offers an exceptionally long finish in which all the flavours combine in subtle, complex harmony. The cognac reveals a discreet vanilla note from the tannin in the wood and a harmonious bouquet with lasting aromas of spices, dried fruits and «rancio».
“Exceptional with a cigar, but just as good without.” Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master
