Martell XO displays golden amber aspects with dark copper and mahogany highlights. To the nose, it exudes flavours of ground spice and red berries, rich fruit flavours of fig chutney and compote, almonds and walnuts with a hint of beeswax and sandalwood aromas. The cognac is rounded and fruity on the palate followed by the characteristic power and finesse of eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne. It is ideal for special occasions. Best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water.
