Napoleon Special Cigare Chateau Montifaud NV
Remarkable aromas of dried fruits and, in particular, grilled almonds. Great freshness and not too tannic. It is characterised by its mellowness and its great long-lasting taste in the mouth. Rancio is very present. Hints of spices appear. A cognac equally appreciated by feminine clientele.
Really nice XO, that brings you to real taste of a non commercial cognac. Intense and rich
Excellent choice for an after "light" dinner. Gives you the taste of champagne while it does not scare you with a heavy alcoholic aftertaste. It gives you a nice smooth aftertaste which you may enjoy for several minutes. Well worth the price, and taste wise it's one of the best non-hyped cognac's around. Five out of five from a northsman!
This is my favorite staple xo. It has a core dark fruit character (berries) that is unusual for Cognac. Most Cognac tends toward orange/apricot core flavors. Very smooth and aromatic, and just a hint of rancio, but the fruit predominates. This is better as a stand-alone Cognac than a digestif, in that the subtleties and fruit are best appreciated on their own. I write this with glass in hand of Delamain Très Venerable.
