Delamain Pale & Dry XO

“This exceptional house only makes Cognacs at XO level and above, so the Pale and Dry is its entry level. It is delightful and ethereal on the palate. Go on, treat yourself!”

Delamain Vesper XO

“Smells wonderful: complex, classic XO, with candied peel, a sniff of chocolate, Brazil nut and macadamia. Jamon too; umami sapid sweetness. Round and patined on the palate, but charged with zesty candied fruits before a tight, flinty rancio finish. Classy.” 97 points

Delamain Pléiade Pléntitude 1980

“Sourced from the hamlet of Mainxe, between Jarnac and Segonzac, this 40-year-old Cognac is at first a little tight-knit and austere, demanding patience. Richly aromatic, with fig and dark chocolate, it expends into caramel and dark honey, lifted by hints of mint. Complex and beautifully balanced.” 95 points
