What is Frérot XO Assemblage de Crus?

Frérot is the people’s Cognac, co-created by hundreds of Flaviar members whose voices guided us through a crowdtasting. It is a sublime and wonderfully complex Spirit blended from several batches of very old Eaux-de-vie originating from all 6 Cognac regions (Crus): an "Assemblage de Crus.”

Produced in small batch using centuries-old traditions by 6th generation Cognac makers, Frérot’s Eaux-de-vie were carefully put to rest in French oak barrels and in cold humid cellars for a minimum of 20 and up to 35 years.

Non-chill filtered and slightly higher in alcohol, Frérot could be dubbed a Cognac for Whiskey lovers. We simply call it “the people’s Cognac.”

Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.

Tasting Notes

This blend offers a rich profile, with delicious hints of candied fruits, fresh raspberry, blond tobacco, spices (cinnamon, timut pepper, cardamom), marzipan and dried Iris flower. It is finished with elegant, smokey hints and the infamous “rancio”.

Andrew
Andrew,
Sorry, too sweet with a bitterness in the finish. Not a fan but it makes a good mixed drink. My wife loves it as a sidecar.

Levi
Levi,
I never thought I would like cognac, but after getting a tasting box, I'm intrigued. The frerot was not as good as the daincourt in my tasting box, but I have been pleasantly surprised but it. I still haven't been able parse out the rancio flavor, but I can taste the wine heritage and I like it.

Jacob

Monotone; however the flavor of tobacco and candied fruits is prevalent; overall not bad but still leaves something to be desired

Frérot is one of the finest Cognac’s I’ve had the pleasure of tasting.

Axel
Axel,
I want to be in the reach of this flavorful cognac all of the rest of my life! I live an hour away from Cognac, and never had the chance to taste a cognac that is so dry in its finish. The tobacco profil is strong and ever lasting. A beautiful distilled assemblage of grappes... most advised to be enjoyed with a Churchill!
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Very good Cognac. Really enjoyed the flavor. Not as smooth as other Cognac as I have had. It had a very small burn. Loved the sweet after taste to the cognac. Overall worth every penny.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
I'm new to cognac and whiskey. This seemed very smooth. Definitely a nice balance of sweetness, notes of tobacco and just a tad of smoke. One of the best Cognacs I’ve ever had.

I'm new to cognac and whiskey. This seemed very smooth. Definitely a nice start before getting straight to whiskey.
 
John
John,
Years ago my first experience with cognac was not a good one, tasted like diesel fuel. Took a chance on this one and absolutely loved it. I will definitely get it again, goes great with my cigars.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Never had a cognac before, so I don’t have a comparison, but I enjoy it. Syrup on the nose and initial fruit flavor. Goes down smooth.
 
ROBERT
ROBERT,
Never thought I was a Cognac drinker but this bottle sure changed my mind. Very very nice.

Jon
Jon,
Full disclosure: I've never had cognac before so I have nothing to compare it to. That said, this cognac is amazing! The aroma is very typical of a quality whiskey. A little heavy on the honey notes. The oak is powerful. Tasting gives a brief and mild burn at the back of the throat. The smoothness is immediately apparent. I find it a little difficult to describe, but there is almost a fruity grape-like quality. More honey, perhaps a bit floral. If this wasn't a limited release I would immediately order another bottle!
 
Lou
Lou,
Absolutely delicious! Also amazing we were able to be part of the process. Crowdtasting is a thing now!

Great cognac. Wonderful hints of caramel and vanilla. Very refined.
 
Jim
Jim,
Has a very smooth even flavor. I am not COGNAC FAN BUT THIS COULD CHANGE MY MIND.
 
William
William,
Did not meet my expectations and like other cognacs I have drunk it did not leave the lingering taste I was expecting.
 
Cole
Cole,
Solid, but nothing special. Didn't really have any strong character. Sort of "muddied" taste, almost as if there was no specific flavor profile. Decent and very drinkable, not worth the price. Would not buy again.
 
Halstead
Halstead,
A wonderful full flavored cognac for whisky drinkers. Fruit front with a smoky finish, a true delight. My preference would have been just a note sweeter, to be rated 10 as a cognac, but a highly enjoyable snifter none the less.
 
Dong
Dong,
One of a kind.
 
Karmikhel
Karmikhel,
A distinct taste that reminds me more of a scotch whiskey than a cognac

Excellent, it’s even better than I anticipated.

Jack,
A fantastic Cognac. Perhaps the best I've had...certainly the best value. Loved everything about it! It has changed my mind about Cognacs; and now I have to debate the merit of a glass of scotch tonight....or even better....a glass of Cognac! Well done Flaviar!
 
Peter
Peter,
Syrupy smell with a sweet, rich full tobacco mouth feel. Another unique taste I can't quite place, nice long finish. A cognac like I've never had before!
 
Aljaz
Aljaz,
I really loved this one. Not only the flavors, but also the story behind this drink. Oh man! When tasting it I first got a hint of smoke which opened the gates for candied fruit and cinnamon. Just lovely. And as a whisky lover I can really appreciate such a cognac. Well done!
 
DARIN
DARIN,
This Cognac is a great value for the price point offered
 
Stephen
Stephen,
This is exactly the cognac I wanted! Flaviar, you listened. It’s a whiskey lover’s cognac. Not too sweet, a little complex, and a little kick. Thank you!
 
Alon
Alon,
Smooth, and I can taste the oak. But there's a very sour, somewhat lemony finish that I really don't like. It doesn't taste like a grape brandy at all. Doesn't taste like typical whiskey either. I would never buy this again. It was a good experiment, but I would not recommend it. Oh well...
 
Raoul
Raoul,
Very smooth, sweet and soft, oak and vanilla. Easy to drink and easy to become an every day’s favorite. It has a nice degree of complexity, I love it, nevertheless it is definitely not my most complex cognac ever. I would rate it 8.5/10, but since I can only rate 8 or 9 I give it 9/10, abit flattering though.
 
Crispin
Crispin,
Love the cinnamon finish at the end. Amazingly smooth for my tastebuds
 
Troy
Troy,
Very enjoyable with rich fruit flavors at first and a warm cinnamon finish that is dry on the palate. A superb finish. As a whiskey drinker this was fantastic.
 
John
John,
A very good, balanced cognac...Not sweet, has notes of cinnamon
