Tasting Notes

The word on Armagnac is finally getting out and it is because of bottlings like this, To say it overdelivers is a gross understatement. A one off blend of five single vintage, single cask Armagnacs with three vintages dating to the 1980s and two from the '90s. No additives and bottled at full proof. The flavors are vivid, accessible and invigorating, none of the heavy over oaked tannin bombs you can sometimes get with an older Armagnac. Beautiful complexity with notes of desiccated cherry, sweet pipe tobacco, toasted hazelnut, chile infused dark chocolate, rooibos tea, orange peels and fresh nutmeg.

Staff Pick Notes

Most sequels fall short because they cannot escape the shadow of their predecessor. The people at PM Spirits and L’Encantada were wise to make their 2nd X.O. bottling totally different from the 1st. While the original blend was a celebration of fruits and aromatics this new one shows off exotic spices and depth. Orange zest, lots of pipe tobacco, cinnamon, nutmeg, and black tea. You’ll find rich fudge and nutty notes emerge as this opens in the glass. This new X.O. doesn’t just step out on its own, it struts.
