Description

While the VS and VSOP levels of the larger brands are often middling, you can find quality at higher levels, such as this Martell XO bottling. Mahogany in color, with a complex nose of candied orange peel, molasses, cedar and a distinct note of everygreen forest. On the smooth palate, there are big flavors of prune, balanced by baking spices like clove and cardamom, and the finish is woody but elegant.
