Tasting Notes

The Antique XO is a very special and rather old cognac, that reveals some great notes of sweet vanilla, green fruits, slight spices on the tongue. The palate includes again spices and quite some earthy tones.

Antique XO received the 2013 Gold Award at International Wine & Spirit Competition. 

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine produces one of the most exquisite cognacs since six generations. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards. The house has a very special tradition of producing relatively small quantities but with a very high standard in quality. One of their trademarks is to store their vintage casks in cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town. These highly priced vintage bottles are called “Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac”.
