The Tiffon Extra XO Superior Cognac is a wonderful, truly old cognac from this extraordinary house. It's been created from a selection of exquisite, vintage cognacs that have been hidden away in the cognac house's cellars for 3 generations.
Presented in a decanter and case, this isn't a bottle you want to hide away in a cabinet - it looks fabulous on display. Of course, as you'd expect from such an old cognac, it's a deep color and offers the delightful taste of Charantais rancio. This is a cognac for super special occasions - one that will delight the connoisseur as it takes you on a tasting journey that tantalizes all the senses.

Tasting notes by Tiffon Cognac:
This well-matured cognac has primary notes of dry apricots and ripe plum. Hints of walnut and light spices give it great force and a delicate finish with the flavor of rancio.
With strong ties to the Scandinavian country of Norway, the history of Cognac Tiffon dates back to 1875. Tiffon is to this day a family run business, and is based at the beautiful family home, the Chateau de Triac, just 5 kms from the town of Jarnac. The Chateau itself has a battle-scarred and convoluted history, dating back to the 11th century, which includes being razed to the ground by fires and completely demolished during the Hundred Years’ War. Today, the family grows 40 hectares of Grande Champagne and Fins Bois vines, overseen by cellar master Richard Braastad, who comes from an old cognac producers’ family.
