Napoléon Cognac

Napoleon means that the youngest element in the blend is aged for at least six, but an average of 20 years and upwards. Legend has it that the name Napoleon Cognac originated from the French Emperor Napoléon, who had his Cognac bottles delivered to him. Officially Napoleon is equal to XO Cognac in terms of minimum age but normally marketed as an in-between of a VSOP  and an XO Cognac. The next age level beyond Napoleon is Extra, Vieille Reserve and Hors d'Age. Read more about Cognac ages, or Cognac education in general.
