The Courvoisier XO Imperial Cognac is dominated by the flavors and aromas from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, however, the delights of the Borderies eaux-de-vie within the blend complement them perfectly. The components that make up the blend are between 20-35 years of age, and the result is a well-rounded, slightly feminine Cognac with a unique bouquet.
Enjoy the evolution of this Cognac; from the developing aromas from fruit to spice, and a silky, fruity pleasure in the mouth. And of course, as you'd expect from such a well-aged Cognac, the finish is long and utimately satisfying.
This is the Cognac that appeared in the Busta Rhymes video, Pass the Courvoisier!

I have aways enjoyed this brand of Cognac, I worked at a four star restaurant in Corpus Christi where I learned about Cognacs from the Chef's and I was able to sample many brands both affordable and more expensive but always came back to this brand. I was first given a taste in a cup of premium coffee with a dessert and was impressed. Later I was given it in a sipping glass and really enjoyed it.
