A Cognac buyer gets a bit carried away and ends up being a Cognac producer. Magnifique!
In 1858, Amédée Edouard Dor, the eldest son of a noble Cognac family, embarked on his lifelong passion – to amass the finest collection of Cognac in France. Keen to preserve the Cognacs at their very peak, when he felt they had reached optimum maturity in their oak barrels, Mr. Dor decanted the Cognacs into wax sealed demijohns (glass vessels) so that future generations could enjoy and experience his work. Today, many of these vessels remain intact and untouched quietly resting in a once secret cellar called Paradis, which has remained unchanged for almost 200 years.
A.E. Dor is located on the borders of Grande Champagne, the most prestigious region (cela signifie: coûteux) for growing Cognac grapes. It is made predominantly of Grande Champagne grapes and has been aged in new barrels to give the Cognac a more tannic edge, it also reflects terroir characteristics so it is a heavier Cognac. A.E. Dor XO has been aged for 25 years, which is quite a bit longer than the current and the future minimum legal XO age (today 6 years and 10 years from April 2016).

Dog Dogson's
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor normally found only in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based spirits: Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of ageing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Quite dark.
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Sweet wood, some flowery tones and the beginnings of an earthy rancio note (a nutty flavor of Port wine).
Flavour / Taste / Palate
Sweet up front and oily. Notes of peach, apricot, even apple, honey, coffee and woody spice combined.
Complex, layered, velvety. Silky texture with sweet and earthy crème brûlée finish.
Well rounded maturity, a delicately structured, yet alluringly rich blend of Cognacs from both Petite and Grande Champagne.
