Bisquit XO Cognac is a stunning Fine Champagne blend that celebrates the best qualities of each of the premiers crus in one smooth and luxurious Cognac. The Bisquit Cognac house is perhaps most well known as being the favorite brand of Mr Winston Churchill himself. One can truly imagine the former Prime Minister in his study, savoring the smoky scent and aromatic flavors of this Cognac, perfectly complementing the classic Cuban cigar he is smoking in his other hand.
Enjoy the luxuriously rich and complex depth of flavor that comes from this Fine Champagne blend, with a predominantly woody bouquet with smokey notes of tobacco and rich cocoa, candied fruit and prune present themselves on the nose before transferring onto the palate with your first sumptuous and smooth sip. These fruity flavors are further enhanced by aromatic notes of plum, mocha, cedar wood and licorice, offering a diverse and velvety mouthfeel and complex combination of flavors that allow you to enjoy an illuminating and varied drinking experience.
This wonderful XO has won numerous awards, it pairs perfectly with a rich dark chocolate dessert as a digestif, the cocoa and mocha flavors of the Cognac will be lifted by the dessert, whilst the woody and smoky notes add an extra element to your dining experience, with the notes of candied fruit contrasting the rich, creamy cocoa textures presented on your plate and palate!

About Bisquit Cognac
Founded by Alexandre Bisquit in 1819, the house of Bisquit, with its home at the Château de Lignères by the banks of the Charente River, had a long-standing family tradition until the house was sold to Pernod Ricard in 1966. Said to have been among the favorite Cognacs of Winston Churchill and King George IV, it is popular in the Anglo-Saxon countries and hence was bought by the South African group Distell in 2009.
