Tasting notes

The colour: Quite bright, slightly golden. The nose is intense, a good deal of floral hints and vanilla. The taste is round, and fruity. A solid after taste.

This is a nice XO with great flavour and very reasonably priced. It is light yet refreshing and flavourful, I find it to be more fruity and lingers in the mouth for a while. Overall two thumbs up. Cheers!

Simply put, this is the best value in XO cognacs. It's Grande Champagne. It's a multiple of the minimum 6 years of age for an XO. In the mouth it's fruity, smooth, and complex. I've corresponded with Charles B. himself who is - despite being the head of one of the most respected houses - very concerned with customer satisfaction. Four stars. I'm dying to buy a Reserve de la Famille.
