Eye: Clear, light amber with golden flecks.

Nose: Orange spiced tea, fresh cut apples, and cherries first. The nose does not overpower.

Palate: Delicate floral flavors, with sleek notes of vanilla, the wood tied powerfully well, a fine interplay of fruit and acidity laced with a touch of licorice. A finesse to the Cognac for its age, with a lengthy finish.

Description

The youngest Cognac of the Delamain range aged for 25 years

Although it might be the youngest of the entire Delamain range, the Delamain Pale and Dry XO has been matured for a quarter of a century to produce a very fine and elegant Cognac. With a distillate from Ugni Blanc and Colombard grapes, it comes from the Grande Champagne - also known as the Premier Cru. 

Aged on average for 25 years, the Pale & Dry XO Cognac is known for its pale color that is 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 a 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.

They mature under optimal conditions in old barrels. The distillation is carried out gradually. Eaux-de-vie of the same age is then blended. The four factors all play a significant role - 25% being the distillate; 25% the barrel; 25% of the cellars and 25% the time taken. A fine assemblage aged over many years.

How to serve

Enjoy this Cognac at room temperature as a digestif or with a cigar.

Presentation of the Pale and Dry decanter 

The bottle is a true ode to the Delamain Cognac savoir-faire, with a beautiful illustration adorned across the label. The bottle itself features an etching of a seal into its neck, and arrives in an equally as intricate presentation box.
