Hine Cognac Antique XO Premier Cru Cognac is the crème de la crème.

Thomas Hine has been distilling their delectable works along the banks of the La Charente River since 1763. When you're doing the same thing in the same spot for over 250 years, you're bound to get pretty good at it.
Hine is famous for having old vintages on hand. Every once in a while, they issue a special release that sells for the price of a car. Most of the time, though, they continue to produce a series of premiumaccessible, extra aged Eau-de-vies of the highest quality. Queen Elizabeth herself declared them the “royal suppliers of Cognac.” 
Hine Antique XO was originally created in 1920 by Georges Hine (grandfather of Bernard Hine, today’s Honorary Chairman). It was a blend of old fine Champagne Cognacs that he made for his family to enjoy. Old or “antique” Cognacs were unusual at the time. The fashion of the day was younger, “fresh” Cognacs. Georges’s personal nickname for the casks of mature vintage Cognacs in the ancient cellars beneath their Jarnac offices was “antiques”, and they still bear the same name to this day. 
Hine Cognac Antique XO Premier Cru has since become HINE's flagship. In the 1950s, François and Robert Hine were inspired by a crystal decanter that Robert had received as a wedding gift, so the packaging of Antique was changed to it’s current, decanter-shaped bottle. But the elegant bottle is only the beginning. Hine really is an essential for every Cognac lover out there.

Dog Dogson's
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, be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and be aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most Cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.

Ratings & Reviews
An incredible cognac expression. It is bold, has a complex nose of vanilla, brulee, fruit and spices, a complex and bold palate and stands really well with a cigar. Well worth it.
While the price may look high, it is well within the range of local US dealers - when they even carry it, that is. This is my favorite flavor of any of my drinks.
It is an outstanding, rich, XO Premier Cru finish long & delicate!
I can buy this for $180 includes shipping through The Whiskey Exchange... https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/11969/hine-antique-xo-premier-cru-cognac
The aroma is delicious and the taste is smooth--goes down easy. Well worth the cost for this exquisite cognac.
