The Leyrat XO Vieille Reserve Cognac is a nice old blend made solely from eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois terroir. Cognacs created from Fins Bois are a delight, and instantly recognizable. This excellent example has a complex, highly enjoyable taste that is best combined with good food, company, and conversation.

Tasting notes: A complex nose opens with nutty aromas, pastry and butterscotch and a hint of dry leaves. The nose evolves to more pronounced dry fruits and nuts with vanilla undertones. The palate is present, initially quite dry, with the long clean finish typical of Leyrat cognac.
Cognac Leyrat is part of the 250 hectare estate owned by Francis and Elodie Abecassis. They also own the brands Cognac Le Reviseur and Cognac ABK6. As with the rest of the company’s range, Cognac Leyrat is produced from the fruits of a single estate. These eaux-de-vie are then aged and blended into a full range of cognacs, from a VS right through to their flagship product Leyrat Glory, which is a minimum of 40 years of age.
