Remy Martin XO Cognac
This version is 85% Grande Champagne. Rich topaz color. Succulent notes of orange peel, marzipan and sweet oak shine in the first two nosings; later on piquant, spirity scents underpin the surface fragrance, featuring ripe yellow fruit, cigar smoke and bacon fat. Round, almost fat, flavors of sauteed butter and dark caramel greet the taste buds at entry; the midpalate phase is highlighted by resiny oak and nougat. It finishes long, resiny and dry. Stately, grand and savory. Highly Recommended.
