Distillerie du Peyrat

The Distillerie du Peyrat XO Cognac is, as are all of the offerings from this artisan house, an organic creation.  Although it is a blend of Cognacs from various terroirs, most of the eaux-de-vie that have gone into making this delicious XO are from Petite Champagne..  This has led to a Cognac with a real diversity of aromas - including chocolate, tobacco, saffron, and leather.  

This is a wonderful Cognac that, thanks to the extended aging period it's undergone, really does showcase how good the 'rancio' flavors can be.  This is something that only begins to appear in well aged Cognacs, such as this.
