Hine Antique XO Premier Cru

Door 17 of our Drinks by the Dram Cognac Advent Calendar reveals a sample of Hine Antique XO Premier Cru Cognac bottled at 40%. Directly when opening the bottle and pouring it in my glass, the creamy sweet fruity flavours appear together with the feeling of vanilla pudding and red summer fruit filling my mind with a good milk chocolate bar on the side. This smells like a dessert to me…

The palate does not let me down and gives me exactly what the nose promised. A hint of mixed nuts, maple syrup, dried figs, raspberry, cranberry, fresh plums, fudge and candied oranges is added to give it even more depth of flavours. A warm, sweet and fruity dram with a medium length finish. A good one to go with a big bowl of ice cream or maybe a good French cheese platter… Thanks for sharing a sample of this cognac Drinks by the Dram!
