Baron Otard XO Gold is an older cognac of the cognac house. This blend of Grande Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois eaux-de-vie comes in a 70 cl bottle. Due to its long ageing process the cognac presents a balanced taste. The "golden" XO Gold is to be enjoyed neat, as an after-dinner drink.

The nose : Round and balanced notes, oak hints and almond. A rich rancio comes in, some leather aromas. The Borderies spirits in this blend lead to a floral fragrance.
I tasted this in a blind tasting against 5 other XOs and must say: The palate is pretty light and the finish a bit more intense. Gets a solid rating from me!
Really soft and round on the nose. The taste is something else! It's got a real wow factor! Explodes on first taste, and then evolves through the spectrum to super-mellow. A very enjoyable Cognac
