Braastad Cognac XO Fine Champagne - Refined and complex eaux-de-vie
A fantastic Fine Champagne blend (at least 50% from Grande Champagne), demonstrating the most superior qualities of both the Grande and Petite Champagne region, the Braastard XO Fine Champagne is a complex Cognac cultivated from the two premier crus.
A wonderfully spicy XO with astounding aromas of fresh fruit, the Cognac has been aged between 15 to 20 years, resulting in a sensory explosion with a luxuriously lengthy finish.
According to the master blenders at Braastad, this Cognac delivers a developed nose of leather and truffles. On the palate, notes of violet and vanilla are dominant, two key flavors that often are present in a Fine Champagne blend. These floral aromas are balanced by harmonies of hazelnut, creating a unique and pleasant drinking experience where sweet meets spicy and floral meets earthy.
Braastad XO Awards
This exquisite Extra Old Cognac from the masters at Braastad has taken home several awards at both the IWSC and the International Spirits Challenge, a true testament to its complex and vibrant flavors - appreciated by those professional and domestic Cognac connoisseurs alike.
How to Enjoy
This stand-alone Cognac is ideally drunk neat, preferably in a traditional tulip glass or snifter. It also makes the perfect accompaniment to a post-dinner cheese course.
Presentation of the Bottle
A square-based and sturdy bottle, atypical of your more traditional Fine Champagne Cognacs, the subtleties of the design come from the elegant images of the estate perfectly placed on the bottle’s label, a symbol of tradition and savoir-faire.
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.
