Elegance and complexity for this XO, a historic label of a company that, since 1870 produces the most famous wine distillate in the world in the enchanting scenery of Charente. Produced from more than one hundred different spirits some dating back to the last century, this XO was created by Maurice Hennessy for his small circle of friends. 12 years aging to create a unequaled strength result. Also the bottle is wonderful, designed to enclose such a great nectar like this; clusters and vines are screen-printed to illustrate how the grapes are always the main protagonists. Deep amber in color with a high brightness. The nose reveals intense orange peel, caramel and dried fruit notes, with spicy vanilla and tobacco hints. The taste is robust, complex and enveloping, very rich in aromatic olfactory references and with a very long toasted nuts persistence. Perfect to drink straight and slowly, appreciating all the evolution nuances.
