Merlet XO Cognac is a multi-cru blend aged at least six years and bottled in a custom 70 cl Merlet decanter. The Merlet family has been distilling and aging eaux-de-vie since 1850. This rich golden-brown cognac is in the lineage of house with a clean, ample palate of fine woodiness and lasting fruity notes.
Merlet XO - Superor quality with an Fantastic price, WOW!!!
This is my 1st experience with the X.O. from Merlet. It just arrived at the retailer who said it just arrived from the wholesaler and I think needs to settle down. The nose shows light floral elements with hints of oak comming through. The palate is initially soft but starts to open up big time with good fruit elements and hints of oak.
After a few minutes in a snifter the palate becomes richer with light caramel notes. The finish after a few minutes in the glass becomes richer, smoother and very enjoyable. The price is ridiculous. $99.99 for a 750 ml. GREAT VALUE. Other X.O.s go for $180++
About Merlet Cognac
With a traceable history dating back to 1850, the Merlet family have continued to produce cognac, alongside a continually growing range of other products, to the current day. Headed today by Gilles Merlet, his sons Pierre and Luc joined the business a few years back, bringing with them a new generation of enthusiasm and direction. Although the house Distillerie Merlet & Fils originally produced eaux-de-vie for some of the most prestigious cognac houses in the world of cognac, they are now famous in their own right, not only for their quality cognacs, but for their innovative range of other products that sell around the globe.
