Is our eXtra Old blend made up of Armagnacs that have been aged for at least 8 years. XO is perfect for mixing and it will delight those that are looking for a rich and smooth spirit.
We make XO in small batches, patiently aged in the deepest charred barrels and bottled at 84 proof to maintain our approach to big flavor. It's a rather woody blend, with spicy aromas, complex but remains round. This rich Armagnac brings oak and leather together with slightly sweet notes of flower and fruit.
We happen to use the highest quality grapes. It's what gives you that unique spicy, smooth flavor that changes your cocktails forever.
Nothing in Gascony is subtle. Not the three Musketeers, duck, rugby, and especially not the XO Armagnac.
Color is dark golden yellow, with warm, hints of fire.
The scents of caramel and maple syrup, followed by spices such as nutmeg, vanilla and white pepper, greet you in a way the sun's early rays lay on the vineyards in Gascony.
The palate is soft and consistent with the nose, offering butter scotch, tobacco, leather and roasted nuts as well. Dark cherry and prunes are little by little pushing to the front, refreshed by a dry apricot and orange zest presence.
The finish is clean and long with a very pleasant consistency.
