The Courvoisier Artisan XO Ultime Cognac is the oldest in the 'Artisan' range by this premier cognac producer. Using both Grande Champagne and Borderies eaux-de-vie, the blend is aged using a three-fold process:
First the cognacs are aged in virgin limousin barrels, then transferred mature casks. To finish the process they are moved to ancient vats to produce an incredibly smooth, intense aromas and flavors.
The result is a great quality cognac that provides an intense drinking experience: balanced, aromatic, smooth and, as one would expect of an XO cognac, a wonderfully satisfying finish.

Tasting review by Courvoisier:
Complexity and sumptuous smoothness for this exceptional cognac.
Courvoisier is amongst the four leading cognac houses in the world. Legend has it that the emperor Napoleon himself chose Courvoisier as his preferred cognac, therefore Courvoisier is often referred to as “The Cognac of Napoleon”. The company dates back to 1828 and since has its headquarters in the town of Jarnac. With prestigious bottles such as Courvoisier Napoleon or Josephine, the cognac house is at the top of the luxury spirits market. The drink is strongly engrained in US Hip Hop culture with Busta Rhymes and P Diddy dedicating the song “Pass the Courvoisier” to the traditional cognac.
