Meukow XO Extra Old Cognac is a delightful blend of eaux-de-vie from Fine Champagne, Fins Bois, and Bons Bois. This fruity blend combines the tannins that occur after long aging on oak barrels, the delicacy of Grande and Petite Champagne, and the sweetness of Fins Bois and Bons Bois. It takes the taster on a true sensory journey, and of course, has the lengthy, powerful finish that you'd expect from a cognac of this quality.
The bottle itself is lovely to behold, adorned with the emblem of Meukow, the panther, in a wonderful golden hue. An award winning cognac that is the perfect addition to any cognac lover's cabinet. And it would make the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates fine things.

On the nose rather floral, slight fruits. On the palate more flower flavours and candied fruit. The finale is dominated by spices and smoke hints.
Very good XO, in most places amazing value as well.
This is a well rounded XO that has a great nose, nice smoothness and is very easy drinking.
Lingering palate with stronger vanilla tones, and a very slight expresso/dark chocolate finish.
At under 200 (heck often under 150) it is a very good value and a great bottle to add to any cognac lover collection
If you like round and rather sweet cognac, this is your bottle! I personally really like Meukow's design with all that gold.. and those bottles are unique. Their extra old cognac is really solid, the palate is round and a bit sweet.. the finish has some spices without overly dominant burn. Tres bon!
