The ABK6 XO Renaissance is a delightful new offering by this innovative cognac house. Presented in a clean, modernistic carafe and presentation box, this XO quality is certainly one that will delight anyone who enjoys a balanced, aromatic taste, combined with a complexity of different flavours and a delightfully lengthy finish.
ABK6 pride themselves in producing cognacs that have that special 'X-factor' - anthem the XO Renaissance certainly hits the spot in that respect. For a cognac of such quality it represents excellent value for money. Enjoy with good friends at the end of a meal - and be sure to have the time to sip and savor - this is not a cognac to be rushed...
very dry / not sweet very smooth / very sweet
ABK6 very good
There is a strange aspect to this cognac perhaps a licorice or anise that is different from most XO cognacs I have tasted over the years. It is unpleasant at first but to be fair the payoff is in the finish which is endless. It pleasantly sits with you afterwards and has you craving another taste....
Great on paper not on nose
This cognac failed my research analytic review process (at these prices it's prudent). I found many different sources that gave this XO a must try rating. Its' nose, taste and finish are muted and minor league in comparison to Frapin Frontpinot XO, Tesseron Lot 76 XO, or Paul Girade Vieille Reserve...
Great extra old
I don't love the nose but the palate is spectacular. just fantastic. Maybe a little expensive for what it is though, compared to other XOs.. and this is not even a fine champagne or grande champagne blend. nevertheless, i love the decanter and abk6 in general. i must compare to their standard xo though....
