Tasting review by ABK6:
Old gold mahogany in colour
The nose displays a great aromatic richness with notes of wood, spice, liquorice, orange peel, and dried figs.
Exceptional and well balanced aromatic strength with a combination of hazelnut, walnut, cedar wood, then candied fruits. This XO is distinguished by its great length.
I don't love the nose but the palate is spectacular. just fantastic. Maybe a little expensive for what it is though, compared to other XOs.. and this is not even a fine champagne or grande champagne blend. nevertheless, i love the decanter and abk6 in general. i must compare to their standard xo though. thanks for the quick delivery!
