Nose: Très sage (French for: very wise) in its expression, the nose offers a profound depth and complexity. Melted aromas indicate a seamless integration of elements, where spice, oak, and fruit find a harmonious alliance. Fresh, dried, and spiced stewed fruits all accounted for. The result is a bouquet that is more than the sum of its parts, showcasing good definition. Sharp and tidy.

Palate: On the palate, this spirit demonstrates a remarkable balance with good fruit richness. The depth is palpable, with each sip revealing layers of complexity. The alliance between spice, oak, and fruit is even more pronounced here, contributing to a well-defined and textured experience. One does not even notice the cask strength alcohol level. A resolutely modern XO blend - in the very best of ways!

Finish: The finish continues the theme of depth and complexity, leaving a lasting impression of melted aromas and integrated flavors. The dried and stewed fruits linger, gradually fading. Finely tannic impression on the cheeks but all in check. Persistent and deep
