With an emphasis placed on crafting wonderful blends without using mass production techniques, there is a guarantee that excellent care and craft has been placed into the XO Extra.
Presentation of the bottle
Presented in a delightfully simplistic decanter, it is a satisfying display of sophistication. A teardrop shape, it has a characteristic charm that is representative of its originality. With gold type and boldly stamped Calude Chatelier branding, the expertise that it has originated from is evident at first glance. Housed in a bold black box, it is fine art from the beginning to the last touch.
How to enjoy
Thanks to its harmonious nature, the Napelon is best enjoyed neat to allow the balanced blend opportunity to be savoured suitably. Perfect for a post-dinner tipple to end your evening on a balanced note. Enjoy in good company and take time to linger over its taste sensation.
Perfect Cognac for this price
Great XO with good age, fair price. Nose - lot of honey, flowers and hazelnuts. Taste - sweet with spices and oak.
My first pass gave me a strong vanilla honey suckle and hazelnut cake smell, on my second pass more Oak and tobacco begin to feel my nose and on my third pass I began to have a sense of subtle fruits and the addition of Walnut. The flavor was very smooth with only a light bite of alcohol but an extremely pleasant experience, I found it on sale for $47 and would say that it was worth every penny , Not my favorite XO by any stretch of the imagination but very nice for a daily sip
