The Park XO Cigar Blend Cognac is also known at the Park Vielle Fine Champagne Cognac. Made with 60% eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and 40% from Petite Champagne, this is a cognac that will delight both those who choose to pair it with their favorite cigar, as well as those who enjoy a robust cognac with power and complexity.
As you'd expect from a cognac of this age, the color is deep and opulent, yet with sharp flashes of blonde hues indicating the complexity, balanced style it hides within.
As with all of the cognacs produced by Park, the XO Cigar Blend (or Park Vielle Fine Champagne) is hand crafted and produced in small batches from only the very best selected eaux-de-vies. A delightful cognac...
