Napoleon: 20 Years average On Ice & Neat & Food Pairing

An unofficial age designation, "Napoleon" Cognac is comparable to XO quality, meaning the youngest eau-de-vie in the blend needs to have aged for at least 10 years in oak barrels. The origin of this name goes back to the French Emperor Napoleon and the Cognac House Courvoisier.

Tasting review: Eye:   Copper gold Nose:  Fruity - candied fruits, apricots, figs, apples, caramel, leather, oily nuts, oak tones Palate: Sweetish on entry, drying - many ripe fruit notes, raisin, ice wine, vanilla, and oak pepper.  A lingering, oaky and vanilla finish.

Tasting notes: On the nose touches of rose, jasmine, clove pink, combined with the first flavours of fruits: peach, plums. The old maturation of this Cognac has given it its vanilla aroma and the light and sweet aroma that only an old cognac has.
