BAS ARMGANAC HORS D’AGE XO 40° 750ml
GRAPE VARIETIES: ugni blanc 60% baco 40%
Elegant yet powerful, the Tariquet Hors d’Age (or XO) is the finest of the estate’s traditional Bas-Armagnacs. A classic blend, made from eaux-de-vie which have been aged for 12 to 15 years. Serve at room temperature after a good meal, or at the end of a long day. Cigar lovers will appreciate the way
the Hors d’Age (or XO) gracefully complements a fine Havana.
PROFILE: A traditional Bas-Armagnac, elegant and full-bodied.
TASTING NOTES: An amber-yellow colour with a powerful bouquet dominated by nuts (almonds) and quince jelly, with notes of dried flowers and a hint of coconut which will open up as the brandy breathes. The attack is fleshy with a hint of honey. On the palate, the Hors d’Age (or XO) achieves a remarkable balance between fruity and woody notes, with a sustained strength of flavour. Hints of prunes, almonds and rancio build to a finish founded on toasted aromas with a subtle hint of leather.
