XO Cognac is produced with well-known grapes from regions in France. A fine Cognac is 15% petite champagne and 85% Grande champagne blended typically in batches of 300 barrels and aged anywhere from 10-37 years in age (average of 25 years). Breckenridge Distillery imported those barrels and aged their Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey in those Cognac barrels for just over 2 years to date. This cask finish whiskey will be bottled and released as Breckenridge XO Cognac Cask Finish Whiskey for Series 2 of the Collectors Art Series.
Nose: Inviting aromatics of grape with a hint of clove and cinnamon.
Palette: Smooth caramel and dates embody the tongue with a hint of apple butter, cacao, and allspice as it travels all around your palate. Long finish of cinnamon, baking spice, and resounding dry oak.
