Incredible bottles like this outstanding OX (Old Extra) Cognac demonstrate that their status in the industry is well-earned. This spirit has been aged for between 30-35 years, far beyond the 6 years legally required, and illustrative of Montifaud’s policy of over-aging their Cognac. The Cognac has been aged in French oak casks in the Montifaud cellars, a dry and cool location that is ideal for the slow maturation of fine spirits.
The grapes used to make this bottling were grown in the Petite Champagne cru, widely viewed as one of the finest crus in the Cognac region.
The spirit itself is simply stupendously delicious. Its long age shines through, with absolutely glorious, dignified notes of dried fruit, dark oak, toasted nuts, baking spices, toffee and baked apples. The high quality grape also provides many of the notes found in the final spirit, with bright, fruity flavours of white peach, honeysuckle and sweet grapes. This is not a Cognac that you will forget in a hurry and is equally appreciated by women.
To a Coktail: Pour 4 cl (1½ oz) XO Cognac into the glass and add 3 ices cubes. Perceive the various aromas that are released.
Excellent cocktail base, for appetizer or digestive. It also goes well with scallops cooked with the endive cream.
