Delamain Cognac

The Delamain XO Pale and Dry Cognac is an interesting one.  The word 'pale; is due to the color being much lighter than you'd expect of a Cognac of this age.  This is due to the natural phenomenon of the eaux-de-vie being matured in very old casks.  The word 'dry' is somewhat of a paradox, because it's actually referring to the natural sweetness of the liquid.

The end result, however, is a Cognac that's truly round, intense, and mellow.  It offers real depth of character, combining delicacy with amazing fruitiness.  If you enjoy a Cognac that's truly flavorsome, with good rancio, then give this one a try.  A pure Grande Champagne blend, this is certainly a bottle that will hold its head up high at the smartest of gatherings.

Q&A for Delamain XO Pale and Dry

Edward Willey III 2013-04-11

Simply put, this is the best value in XO cognacs. It's Grande Champagne. It's a multiple of the minimum 6 years of age for an XO. In the mouth it's fruity, smooth, and complex. I've corresponded with Charles B. himself who is - despite being the head of one of the most respected houses - very concerned with customer satisfaction. Four stars. I'm dying to buy a Reserve de la Famille.

This is a nice XO with great flavour and very reasonably priced. It is light yet refreshing and flavourful, I find it to be more fruity and lingers in the mouth for a while. Overall two thumbs up. Cheers!
