TASTING NOTES : To the eye Old gold colour with mahogany highlights, with a beautiful brilliance. To the nose On the nose, this ABÉCASSIS XXO Grande Champagne cognac is very delicate, fine and powerful. It seduces with its freshness and great complexity. The Grande Champagne grape variety is highlighted by elegant woody, vanilla and subtle notes. Dried fruits mingle with the fragrance of dried flowers, jasmine and spring flowers. In the mouth The palate evolves towards cedar wood, a nectar with balsamic accents, pine and sandalwood. A long finish of candied ginger and nutmeg accompanies the bewitching note of the cigar box.
Matured in a unique combination of 1st fill Bourbon and 1st fill Sherry casks for notes of fresh apple, sweet floral grass and hints of chocolate. ‘Vinaya’, a Sanskrit word meaning respect and gratitude, pays homage to the original founders of the distillery who paved the way, as Bladnoch looks forward to an exciting new era of production and innovation.
