Presentation of the Bottle
Presented in quite an unusual shaped bottle, this is a wonderful Cognac to display on the counter of a drinks cabinet. The multi-faceted glass on the base gently flares out and then narrows into a long, slim neck. The gold medallion on the glass and royal purple foil on the neck stand out perfectly against the shimmering liquid contained within.
How to Enjoy Landy XO Excellence Cognac
The complex tasting notes of this expression are best showcased in a tulip glass. After pouring, allow the Cognac to breathe for 30 seconds to fully concentrate the most delicate aromas before you take a sip. An excellent digestif or accompaniment to chocolate-based desserts.
