A beautiful old gold color, with a nose dominated by fruity, pastry notes.  The palate has a good structure, with a long, extended finish during which delightful notes of oak come through.

Description

The ABK6 XO Family Reserve Cognac is the oldest in the ABK6 range.  It's a single estate cognac - one that has deservedly won many awards (including silver in London 2009 and Gold in Bruxelles in the same year).

One of the signature aromas and taste of cognacs from ABK6 is spicy, fruity pastry notes - and this cognac certainly holds true to this.  On the nose you enjoy the dried fruit, nuts, and liquorice aromas typical of well matured cognacs.  

Presented in a smart bottle that boasts clean lines and elegant simplicity, this cognac is a wonderful choice to enjoy as a digestif with friends after an evening of good food.

Single estate, what a winner!

I tasted their VSOP the other day and really liked it, probably the best VSOP cognac under $60 on the market. So.. i got this XO and I also really like it, not as good as their VSOP though, a bit heavier and more complex.. probably because of the longer time in the oak cask.


About ABK6 Cognac

Owned by Francis Abécassis (a homonym of ABK6 when pronounced in French), ABK6 Cognac is a relatively young brand based in the Domaine de Chez Maillard near the village of Claix. The brand is known for its choice to produce single estate Cognacs, with its eaux-de-vie being carefully selected from their 220 hectares of land, specifically for their aromatic intensity and indulgence. The label has shaken up the industry by introducing a young and modern spirit to a traditional drink, without compromising on quality. The company is now one of the largest independent producers in Cognac, and also owns the brands Leyrat, Reviseur and Grands Domaines. Attention to detail is applied to every single aspect of production at ABK6, with sustainable growing methods, Charentaise distillation and precise blending. It’s no wonder the group has taken home over 60 awards in recent years.
