Tasting review

Tasting review:

A fine nose, very complex notes, strong rancio, vanilla and old dark fruit. Round and smooth.

Description

The Andre Petite Extra 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 'EXTRA'.

Complex, round, smooth, and with the great taste of rancio, this version of the Tres Rare Extra 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.

Lovely

We tasted in a XO Extra blind tasting. Position #2. The nose is a bit flat, the final is sort of sour and smooth at the same time. A lot of wood in here & fruits. I like it!

Blind tasted

So I actually did an XO blind tasting and this cognac came in 2nd with 6 other Cognacs. But wait: This is an Extra Cognac, so it's technically older than an XO. Lovely nose, balanced palate and the after taste is pretty nice & rather dry.
I'd say pretty remarkable pricing for what it is - and of course by our friend Jacques Petit, our neighbor from Berneuil. Well done!

A real find

Soft and round on the nose, very pleasant. On first sip it's an exciting taste, that then mellows and becomes more spicy. The aftertaste is lengthy and really enjoyable. A great old Cognac that, especially when compared to others of this caliber, offers incredible value for money


About Andre Petit Cognac

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.
