Frapin VIP XO Cognac + 2 Glasses Gift Pack Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Rich stewed fruits – apples, raisins and dates. Heady aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Sticky dates and Christmas-cake spices with tempting notes of ginger and glace fruits. Very rich and classy, but balanced with a pronounced fruitiness. Powerful flavours on the palate, but no single element dominates.
Finish: Dry spices and root ginger linger.
Comment: Very moreish and appealing, this has the full flavour you expect from XO Cognac but with balance and poise that transforms it.
Colour: Amber old gold
Bouquet: Very rich bouquet with an exceptional finesse. Scents of spicy, woody aromas and praline notes. Specific to very old Grande Champagne Cognacs distilled with the lees
Palate: very floral aromas with scents of spices. Prolonged ageing in new Limousin oak
casks in humid cellars gives roundness and many aromas (hyacinth, narcissus, musky).
It brings also plumpness and suppleness to this old Grande Champagne. An Extra Old quality enriched with much older Cognacs coming from the Family reserve. A very exceptional Cognac.
