$104.95 inc GST

500 ml, 40% abv, France

XO is a blend of several vintages aged from 10 to 20 years matured in oak barrels.

Dartigalongue XO Bas Armagnac, displays a complex nose of caramel, toasted almond, nougat and dried fruit. The medium-bodied, fruit-forward palate is accented by hints of tobacco, cedar and mineral which linger through the finish.

Multi award winner.

“.. The flavor puts on an incredible display of understated power and sheer elegnace… the finish is medium long, poised, vanilla-like and even honeyed… a supremely confident, multi-layered brandy whose calling card is its graceful demeanor.” (‘Best Buy’, F. Paul Pacult)
