The Delamain XO Pale and Dry Cognac is an interesting one. The word 'pale; is due to the color being much lighter than you'd expect of a Cognac of this age. This is due to the natural phenomenon of the eaux-de-vie being matured in very old casks. The word 'dry' is somewhat of a paradox, because it's actually referring to the natural sweetness of the liquid.
The end result, however, is a Cognac that's truly round, intense, and mellow. It offers real depth of character, combining delicacy with amazing fruitiness. If you enjoy a Cognac that's truly flavorsome, with good rancio, then give this one a try. A pure Grande Champagne blend, this is certainly a bottle that will hold its head up high at the smartest of gatherings.
