Braastad XO Fine Champagne Cognac is a wonderfully spicy XO that's designated 'Fine Champagne'. This means that it's a blend of both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie, with at least 50% of the blend coming from the premier cru.
A well developed, complex Cognac, with wonderful aromas of fresh fruit. This complexity evolves beautifully on the palate, with violet and vanilla tones evident. It's extremely well aged, with the components having an average age of between 15-20 years. The resulting sensory explosion tapers off with a delightully long finish. It's also beautifully presented, in a decanter-esque type bottle.
Braastad XO Fine Champagne Cognac
I bought this fine XO Cognac for last Christmas. I have been saving it for special occasions. I have never reviewed anything like this before. It is extremely satisfying and the flavour suits drinking it neat, on its own or accompanied by your favourite cheese.
I will be very tempted to replenish my supply of Braastad XO Fine Champagne Cognac quite soon.
It arrived superbly packaged with a superb bottle of Prunier VSOP
Excellent cognac, underpriced!!!
I like this XO very much. This is my second purchase of this brand. VSOP nothing special but XO is outstanding. It's really discount priced.
Product arrived in excellent condition. The product is exceptional and worth the delivery fees!
best value for money
an XO for under $100 is hard to find but this one is really worth the money! A bit sharp in the end, but great and complex taste. if you like Martell you probably also like brastad XO.
I did a tasting with this cognac, and really liked it.
About Braastad Cognac
In the heart of Grande Champagne in the village of Jarnac lies the impressive Chateau de Triac. The chateau is the home of Cognac Tiffon, to which the Cognac brand Braastad belongs.
Rubbing shoulders with other famous Cognac houses such as Bisquit or Courvoisier, the brand Braastad was created when a Norwegian named Sverre Braastad married into the Tiffon family.
Known for their devotion to the traditional Cognac producing methods, today the whole process is still carried out at the family premises, and Cognac Braastad’s products are renowned worldwide.
