Perhaps one of the world’s most recognised and famous Cognac brands, Rémy Martin XO Cognac is the flagship in the range. My rating is 19/25
Fruity, strong spices – clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. slightly strong alcohol from higher ABV.
Dry, full mouth feel. Strong oak wood, and subtle, lingering anise (liquorice) .
Fruit filled, with dry tannins on the tongue.
Serving suggestions: Neat in a snifter. Any Cognac aged aged for that length of time deserves the respect of appreciating its complex purity with nothing added!
