Tasting review

Eye: Deep golden hue

Nose: Hints of leather and dry fruit

Palate: Round and fruity, somewhat feminine.  Increases in complexity in the mouth, with spicy notes and those of wood.  A long, elegant finale.

Description

Martell XO Cognac 70cl

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.

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.

Martell XO Awards

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. 

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.

About Martell Cognac

Martell is the oldest of the Big Four Cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, not long ago did Martell celebrate its 300-year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715 when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in Cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, the cuvée Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market, and are famous for using large amounts of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terroir. It belongs to Pernod Ricard and has sales of around 15 million liters every year. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell - approximately 1.6 million 9-liter cases!

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.
