Pale & Dry X.O., given its name for its natural pale color and dry taste is a blend of cognacs aged for many years. Draped in extremely bright, light amber robes, clear and shot through with flashes of gold, Pale & Dry X.O. subsequently reveals its remarkably delicate elegance and distinction. Its bouquet is characterized by the powerfulness and length of the intensely floral aromas which are backed by the distinctive vanilla of its rancio. Its mellow roundness on the palate blossoms into a full-bodied fruitiness, with a slight harmonious hint of liquorice.
Vesper, a blend of cognacs older than Pale & Dry X.O., has been crafted in a different, more classic style with a more pronounced amber color that reveals bright flashes of pure gold. The initial oaky bouquet gives way to aromas of mushrooms, dry vine shoots and vanilla. On the palate, the remarkable length matches the extraordinary full-bodied roundness. This is a very full, very mature, notably refined cognac.
Extra, a blend of cognacs older than Vesper, is an intense and fruity Cognac. Similar to all Delamain cognacs, Extra also has a bright amber color with flashes of gold that reveal the delicate and intenseness of these hand crafted cognacs. The deeply mature and full bodied bouquet mellows on the palate.
