Father's Day XO

First introduced almost a century ago, Pale and Dry XO is composed exclusively of eaux-de-vie sourced from grande champagne, Cognac’s finest “terroir”.

Elegant and extremely delicate, Pale and Dry XO has been carefully matured in Maison delamain’s ancient cellars in well-seasoned French oak casks.

“Delamain’s youngest offering, at 20 to 25 years old, is also one of the standard-bearers of Grande Champagne (the blend was created in the 1920s and hasn’t changed). Light amber, with a delightful nose full of pear, marmalade, quince and orange blossom. The pear and quince carry onto the palate, where a distinctive membrillo-like flavor emerges - a unique note I find in a number of Delamain expressions. There’s gentle spice and warm citrus on the palate, gliding to a long, delicate finish. The definition of elegance. 96 points”.
Jason Wilson, Vinous, September 2019

I found this in a miniature bottle in a wine shop in Chester. It was £5 for the bottle which equates to 2 shots. As you can pay this much for a poor VS in a pub I thought it was a bargain. When I got home and tasted it I felt extremely smug! It is fruity and of course smooth (as it is an XO) and it had a lingering after taste. Well worth a try if on offer.
