The Andre Petite XO Tres Rare Decanter Edition is a Bons Bois Cognac that's made up of eaux-de-vie that have been aged for around 25 years. Naturally, this extended aging period has made for a Cognac of a far higher quality than you'd expect from something that's labeled simply as an 'XO'.
Complex, round, smooth, and with the great taste of rancio, this version of the Tres Rare XO comes in a delighful decanter and presentation box. This makes it almost tailor made to purchase as a gift for the Cognac lover. And for anyone who's not yet familiar with the house of Andre Petit, this is a great place to start. Just be warned - once you taste this delight, you'll have no choice but to return and sample more of their wares.

A fine nose, very complex notes, strong rancio, vanilla and old dark fruit. Round and smooth.
This small family-run cognac producer from Berneuil insists that their cognac is not merely of standard quality. This can be validated by the fact that the Petit family works with traditional methods handed down form their grandparents and harvest the grapes manually. This is almost extinct in the cognac industry due to growing demand and the production of high quantities. André Petit came to some sort of fame in the industry by stopping their contract with Hennessy in the 1960s and deciding to produce themselves. Like many small producers from the Cognac region, they also specialize in the making of Pineau des Charentes.
