XO: Aged 6 Years + On Ice & Neat & Food Pairing

XO stands for "Extra Old", and describes a Cognac consisting of eaux-de-vie that have been aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 6 years. Just like VS (Very Special) and VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale), Extra Old is another English expression, which shows the strong connection to foreign countries, especially Great Britain and America.

"XO" was coined by Cognac Hennessy and first used in 1870. Even though the youngest blend in an XO Cognac can be as young as six years, an XO usually has an average age of between 15 and 20 years, sometimes older. There is talk about raising the youngest component in an XO Cognac to a minimum of 10 years, but this hasn't officially happened yet. Today, as it stands, the minimum age for the youngest eau-de-vie in a blend to qualify as an XO is still six years. An XO Cognac can also be called “Old Réserve” or "Vieille Réserve". As XO is the final official age category, “Napoleon”, "Extra", "Hors d'Age", and "Tres Vieille Réserve", are designations that fall into the XO category, however, there can be important differences in quality and age.
