A beautifully compiled Cognac blended from Grand Cru Champaign Spirits aged a minimum of twenty-five years

In the world of Cognac there are a few names that rise above the rest. Delamain is one of those names.

James Delamain was born in Ireland in 1738 where his Huguenot family had fled during the French religious conflicts. James returned to France and apprenticed in Cognac production. In 1759 he partnered with his father-in-law to form Maison Delamain. When James died in 1800, the company fell apart. But his spirit carried on through his son-in-law, Thomas Hine, who famously founded Hine Cognac. Then, in 1924 his grandson Henri re-established the house, limiting production to exclusively the finest Hors d’Age Cognacs (old beyond age).

In French, "L’Aigle" means "The Eagle" and refers to the spread eagle crest granted to Nicholas Delamain by King Charles I. Delamain Cognac L'Aigle XO has that eagle image emblazoned on the packaging and the sculptural Saverglass decanter. The Cognac Spirit inside the lovely bottle is a blend of Grand Cru Champaign Cognacs, each one a minimum of twenty-five years old. It’s rich, floral, and satisfying Cognac love at first sniff.


Smartass Corner:
Interestingly, to be included in any Delamain collection a Cognac must be a Grand Cru Champaign Spirit aged for at least a quarter century.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Deep Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Many connoisseurs rave about the aroma of warm almonds and orange zest, but we are hypnotized by the delicate florals — from elderflower and lavender to a hint of mountain rose.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Juicy fruits and malted cocoa jump-start the palate followed by elegant notes of english toffee, vanilla custard, and nutmeg.

Finish
The finish is medium length with linger notes of pear.
