Crafted in 2005, the Vieille Réserve XO is a blend of approximately 20 cognacs which were aged for considerable length in different warehouses and were already at reduced strengths, around 43%. The outcome is a broader flavour in the mouth than its stable mates and caters for fans of fuller cognacs without losing the house style known for its dried fruit aromas, dry spiced palate and clean Leyrat-finish. Old gold in colour, with a nose of spicy oak, pears and pepper and a rich, smooth palate with notes of florals and vanilla.
