Tasting review

Tasting review by Pasquet Cognac:

Flavors of dried and preserved fruits, cinnamon and traditional Charentais rancio.  Rich, round, and lengthy aromas of muscat and orange blossom.

Description

The Pasquet XO Grande Champagne Cognac is a delightful offering from this small, traditional cognac house.  And, we have to say, it's extraordinary!  Created from a blend of eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne region, it's the epitome of all that makes this the premier terroir growing area for Cognac grapes.  

Aged for a minimum of 25 years, it takes your taste buds on a rollercoaster ride of spice, cinnamon, dried fruits, muscat, and orange blossom.  And of course, as you'd expect from a cognac of this age, that special 'rancio' is present and correct.  This is cognac to savour - one for special occasions.

Tasted in blind tasting: Winner

I tasted 6 cognacs in a blind tasting and Pasquet's XO came in on position #1! Well done Jean and Amy.. So let's look at this: Intense nose, fruity, floral and sweet - complex. The mouth is super balanced, and I like the after taste. Recommended!

A real find

Tried this Cognac during a blind tasting of other XOs. It was the stand out winner! Slightly bitter on the nose, with a strong entrance onto the palate. Woody and spicy, with a wonderful long aftertaste that mellows as it fades. In comparison to other XOs, it also is really competitively priced. In a nutshell - loved it
