XO Cognac

Discover your XO

XO stands for Extra Old, which means that the youngest element in the blend is aged for at least six, but an average of 20 years and more. From 2016, the minimum age for an XO Cognac will officially be set to 10 years. The abreviation XO was used for the first time in 1870. Generally, an XO Cognac is a more mature and smoother than a VS or a VSOP and enjoyed neat at room temperature. Officially XO Cognac is equal to Napoleon Cognac in terms of minimum age, but normally Napoleon is marketed as an in-between of a  VSOP and an XO Cognac. The next age level beyond XO is Extra, Vieille Reserve and Hors d’Age. Read more about Cognac ages, or Cognac education in general.
