Description

Martell XO

The Martell XO Extra Old Cognac is a delightful offering from Martell, the oldest of the large Cognac houses. It is truly complex due to the powerful flavors created from the blend of the premier cru, Grande Champagne, and the smoothness of the exclusive Borderies terroir. Aged on average between 15 and 35 years, this Extra Old Cognac has turned heads thanks to its unmistakable half-crescent decanter that wouldn’t be out of place displayed within the finest of drink collections. The excellence of this Cognac has been well noted by experts within the industry; having recently been awarded a Gold Medal at the 2017 Cognac Masters. A true blending masterpiece; first the aromas tease your senses, to then thrill the palate with its delicious texture, rich depth and yet manages to remain elegant throughout.

History of Martell

The Martell brand is the oldest of the big French Cognac houses, having existed since 1715. Cherishing the art of craftsmanship, the expertise of creating the finest of Cognacs has been passed down through generations. Jean Martell founded his brand vowing only to make the highest quality Cognac; hence the blend of fine terroirs such as that in the Martell XO. It has a particularly elite history, having been served to the Queen on her Concorde mission, to being used in Hollywood films, royal weddings and more. It belongs to Pernod Ricard selling over 15 million liters each year! Now, it is a big player in the luxury goods market and never fails to reinvent itself time and time again.

How to drink Martell Extra Old

The arched bottle gives Martell XO a one-of-a-kind character and reveals the visionary spirit of Jean Martell in Cognac creation. It is the perfect Cognac for special occasions, and is best experienced neat or with water. The house have also released their own tricentenary edition of the Martell XO to pander to the rich tastes of a great Cognac lover. Find out more about it right here. 

Martell XO Wings

You might recognize the Martell XO for the exclusive Martell: Wings film campaign that was launched for the Cognac by James Gray. By taking the “swift” emblem of Martell, he pays tribute to the heritage of this maison. 

Awards

It has been awarded the Gold Medal in the XO Ultra Premium Category at the 2017 Cognac Masters.

My two friends and I drink the whole bottle of the martrll xo. it was really good coganc. Love the color and the spice, smoothness. We open the hennessy xo and compared both I found that the hennessy xo have a more kicks. I personally like the martell xo better than the hennessy xo, my friends has mix opinion. Maybe the martell was from 2008 and the hennessy xo from 2012. We have a great time in my back yard after the night's over only half of the hennessy xo left. :))Rue

Fantastic cognac! Like all the Martell cognacs it has this Borderies punch in the end.. hmm.. Fine nose, Martell is just on a different planet with this blend. If you compare the martell XO with the XOs of Courvoisier, Hennessy or Remy Martin: Clear winner.
