Audry XO – Fine Champagne

19 April 2010 5 Comments

In the renowned magazine the Time, Audry Cognac has been described as: “The best Cognac You Have Never Heard About”. I totally agree! I tasted the Audry XO and liked it very well!
In terms of complexity and flavor sensation this Cognac is probably the best XO (except anything that is positioned above the XO) Cognac I have ever tasted.

This is an Audry XO Fine Champagne Cognac, which is made from an equal amount Petite (49%) and Grande Champagne (51%) Cognac.

The XO is the 2nd in grade of the 6 Audry Cognac’s. Only the Napoleon is positioned under the XO. I am curious if the other Audry Cognacs exceed this quality even further.

The tasting notes of Audry XO – Fine Champagne are:

The color: amber copper.
The fragrance: vanilla, floral, old wood, little sweetie, coffee and Werther’s Original candies. Soft but very full of flavor.
The taste: toffee, vanilla, floral, little bitter, a little wood. Very soft, but not too soft! A true sensation, very balanced!
The after-taste: the flavor remains good in the mouth.
The origin: 51% Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne 49%.
Age: the youngest blend is 12 years, the oldest is about 30 years.
Price: about € 70, – easy to get via the Internet.
The price / quality ratio: a 8.5!

    Very floral , unusual taste. Very unique spirit. Smooth, balanced, not overly sugary. Great mix of flavours, nice smooth fninish. This is very rare brand in US unfortunately. Tried it in Grand Vefour in Paris for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised. Feminine cognac, yet my wife was not as enthused by it as was I.

    The comment above pertains to Audry Memorial Cognac. The Audry XO is not worth writing about. It is average to below average in every respect.
