Fussigny’s XO is a Grande and Petite Champagne blended cognac. It consists of at least 50% Grande Champagne eau-de-vie. A. de Fussigny’s distilling methods are traditional. The humid cellars of A. de Fussigny are ideal for aging cognac, as they are situated by the banks of the river of Charente, in the cognac region. This kind of storage enhances aromas to where they are supposed to be, giving this cognac a fine and exquisite taste. Like all other Fussigny Cognacs, the A. de Fussigny XO Fine Champagne is aged either in Tronconnais casks or Limousin oak barrels.

Camus XO Borderies Cognac

Camus XO Borderies Cognac

Camus Cognac is a popular cognac, with an international distribution. It is especially strong in the duty free market, thanks to a very early entry in the 1960s. They are famous for their cognac produced on the island Ile de Re. The Camus XO Borderies however, is made in the Borderies region of Cognac, on the periphery more info

of the region. It is extremely fine for not coming from the Petite or Grande Champagne and can keep up with the great XOs by Hennessy or Martell for example.

Subdued floral, violets, vanilla, nuts with some understated oak. Dry entry with a light body and a fair amount of violets, nutty with whispers of fruit notes. Not a lot of the common oaky notes, more understated, making for a relatively light, pleasant drying finish.
