Smooth as silk, soft as a ripe peach, velvety as....well..velvet! - enough analogies, all i can say is this is incredible.
Its very difficult to describe a great quality XO Cognac - each person's experience is unique, because the flavours and feelings are so individual. But from my experience; soft, toffee-like, gentle, rich yet light, sweet yet savoury, those hints of cooked, burnt, caramalised fruit and sugar from a childhood walk through a fairground - but then a long evening in a deep leather chair in a country pub with a roaring fire - Wood, beer, smoke, friends ...maybe even a grey and lazy dog at my feet! Thats the only way to describe drinks like the Frapin XO - emotions.
