Tasting Notes

"Frapin Château de Fontpinot XO Cognac has a beautiful amber hue, and displays notes of spice and rich overripe plum. Its flavor is an amalgam of cinnamon, vanilla, candied fruit, and prominent oak. The longer you sit with the cognac, the more the layers of its spice and fruit flavors develop, so be sure to sip slowly for maximum appreciation."
