This rich blend will appeal to collectors and lovers of limited edition XO-quality cognacs.
How to enjoy
The Prulho house recommends drinking this cognac in its purest form – neat at room temperature. Pour into a tulip glass to ensure that the arrival or aromas are evenly distributed with delicate precision. To take the taste to another dimension, combine it with XO’s rich and velvety chocolate ganache.
The colour of the cognac in the glass is a deep golden copper, the mahogany is reflective. In the aroma, a rich concentration of heather floral scents, roasted nuts, sweet apples and plums. On the palate, there are notes of candied fruit, orange peel, ripe plums, coffee and dark chocolate. This powerful, smooth and well-structured cognac ensures a long finish.
