Description

Bourgoin XO 22 ans Cognac is a 22 year-old eau-de-vie from the forgotten Premiers Bois cru. Premiers Bois existed on the 1909 appellation map but disappeared into the Fin Bois region in 1936. The simple apothecaries’ bottle contains 350 ml of an unblended, golden-amber elixir to which no colorants or sweeteners have been added. This cognac was reduced to 43% alcohol using only time and purified rainwater. It was not chill filtered in order to preserve the best the Bourgoin terroir has to offer.

Woah what a Cognac: Lovely authentic identity but a bit rough

I don't love this Cognac because the nose is a bit weak, the mouth is intense but a but rough.. after taste: let's face it, it's pretty wild, too. But it's for people who love authentic Cognac without additives and sweeteners.. It's a bit expensive because it sort of matches Hennessy XO pricing. Great packaging, great producer identity.. simply a bit rough (for a reason).

Pretty nice

Smooth aromas that are definitely on the spicy side. This continues on the palate, with woody tones also coming to the fore. The aftertaste is long - remaining spicy. Quite a masculine Cognac. The bottle is pretty cool as well.
