“The burnished tawny bronze colour is gorgeous; excellent clarity. The first inhalations come across laid back aromas of caramel, marshmallow, and cotton candy; aeration brings out the depth and key importance of the oak through scents of vanilla bean, dark honey, nougat, pipe tobacco and rancio. The palate entry is fat, buttery and creamy; at mid-palate the taste profile soars as robust flavours take charge, most prominently honey, dark toffee and cocoa. Texture is heavy. Finishes on a honeyed note. An excellent armagnac.” Paul Pacult, Kindred Spirits 2 Delord’s XO is aged for a minimum of six years in oak.
