Hors d'Age Cognac
Hors d’ Age means „beyond age“ and is the age category that describes the highest quality Cognac–in terms of age that is. Officially, it is classed in the XO age denomination, but it is used for Cognacs that have an average age of 30 years and above. Hors d'Age blends can be 30, 40, 50, even up to a 100 years old. An Hors d'Age Cognac is amongst the oldest Cognacs you can get, together with an Ancestral, or perhaps a Très Vieille Réserve.
There is also Vintage Cognac, which can be as old as an Hors d'Age, but the difference is that a Vintage is a single harvest Cognac, not a blend.
