Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
All you need is a few ounces of this golden mahogany wonder, a beautiful date, and a cigar. 
 
Louis Royer set up his first Cognac still in 1853 at the ripe old age of 25. OK, that’s pretty impressive. Before that he kept bees to produce his own honey—a hobby that he maintained for his entire life. The logo of the Louis Royer Cognac company is a gold and blue honey bee to this day. Louis Royer Cognac produces a core range of fine Cognacs—from VS through the their very special 38 Years Grand Champaign, and a few special releases that were evidently distilled by Pterodactyls during the Jurassic Epoch. 
 
Well, not quite that long ago, but you get the point. These guys have been making some of the finest Cognacs in the world in strictly limited production since before the French Revolution. They do one thing, and they do it very very well indeed. 
 
If you are new to Cognacwhere the heck have you been? Let’s start with the label … it says “Louis Royer”—one of the hidden gems of the Cognac world so you know it’s good stuff. It says XO, so you know that this is more than just the good stuff—it’s aged a minimum of six years in premium Limousin oak. If the long history and impressive cultural contribution of France were limited to this one fine Cognac, it would be enough. 
 
Louis Royer XO is like life itself … made for savoring, my friend. Just pour it neat into a snifter and call it a day. All you need is a few ounces of this golden mahogany wonder, a beautiful woman, and a cigar. OK … you don’t really need the cigar and a Cognac of this quality just might help you find the woman.

What does Louis Royer XO Cognac taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Louis Royer XO Cognac and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavour 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.
