    February 1, 2014 - Initial nose reminiscent of a good fruity Armagnac. Once it settles down, there's plenty of burnt caramel and toffee aromas, with a hint of caramelised orange. Very easy to knock back if you're not careful!

    Very nice.

    March 31, 2013 - from 375ml. Consistent with prior bottles, and as always, a standout pairing with homemade carrot cake. Lovely textures, and dazzling aromas and flavors of toffee, graham cracker, orange rind, and raspberry liqueur. Goes down far too easily. highly recommended. 18,0% abv

    December 28, 2012 - what a treat, and to say that it goes superbly with carrot cake, is perhaps the understatement of the year. I'm down to just a few bottles (375), need.to.source.more.now. 18,0% abv

    May 13, 2012 - Lip-smacking delicious. Drank over three nights, and improved slightly with time. Not surprising, but a relatively subdued nose. Notes were slightly sweet and floral. Palate was very much like an only semi-sweet nectar. The grape-juice side of it was thick, round, and a little sweet, but the cognac side of the house was dry, and kept the sweetness well in check. The Cognac became more apparent in the finish, reminding me a bit of the VSOP or Napoleon, and the fruitiness of the juice highlighting the prune-like quality of the XO.

    October 14, 2011 - consistent tn's, from 375ml. This was a pop and pour that came across much like previous bottles, but a tad warm (18% abv). Benefits from a slow-O for an hour or two. Delicious candied orange peel, minerals and toffee bar. Score: B+
