This Armenian brandy was made in collaboration between Flaviar and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. The name means "chess" in Armenian, which, second to enjoying "Konyak", is one of Armenia's most beloved traditions. This blended XO is made from indigenous grapes and made using a continuous column still and a double distillation process in French alembic stills.

Tasting Notes

"This 23 year old Armenian brandy is an intriguing offering, with aromas of raisin and a palate that brings to mind PX sherry or botrytized wine. An upfront sweetness gives way to notes of vanilla, date, and almond. Approachable yet complex, it would make an enjoyable after dinner pour or likely pair wonderfully with a cheese course."
