This Calvados XO (also known as Vieille Réserve 8 years) follows the strict Calvados AOC Pays d’Auge guidelines that require double-distillations in a traditional copper pot still called an “alembic á repassé.”
Complex with subtle aromas of floral and baked apples. Slightly peppery and minty on the palate, with a finish of salted butter caramel. Serve in a small brandy glass.
