Tasting review

Tasting review by Michel Forgeron Cognac:

Eye: A wonderful deep color with golden reflections and flashes of brightness

Nose: Notes of leather and spices, curry, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee, pastry, candied fruit

Palate:  caramelized notes, delicate rancio

Description

The Michel Forgeron XO Grande Champagne Cognac represents excellent value for money for a cognac of this quality.  Created solely from eaux-de-vie from the premier terroir of the region, it epitomizes all that makes such cognacs hold their amazing reputation.  Powerfully aromatic, the journey continues on tasting, and has a satisfyingly lengthy finish - complete with delicate rancio.

With each component aged for between 20-30 years, the cognac has naturally reached an over-proof 45% volume.  For the cigar smokers out there, Michel Forgeron recommend that it's the perfect accompaniment to a Quintero Petit Corona Cigar - or indeed any cigar, thanks to its aromas of spices and leather.
