Big flavors of apple and pear cider, clearly holding their character through the influence of the cask, here bringing flamed orange peel, toasted cinnamon, and a hint of fresh vanilla. The finish is long and complex, with a slight bitter tannin. (Finalist) (Top 100) - 2022 ULTIMATE SPIRITS CHALLENGE ... More details

Rated 93 by Wine Enthusiast
The aroma of this brandy is pure concentrated vanilla richness, while the palate is more drying and complex. Soft vanilla and toffee give way to hints of red fruit, orange peel and oak, leading into a long finish marked by cinnamon and clove.
Winery
This limited edition is a tribute to Japan, one of the very first asian countries to which Boulard has exported its calvados. This XO is a blend of Calvados Pays d'Auge aged in French oak barrels in our cellar in Normandy before a finish of several weeks in new japanese casks of Mizunara oak. This oak is endemic of the japanese archipelago and is used to age the best japanese whiskeys. Boulard is the first Calvados house to associate it with its eaux-de-vie. Colour: Bright amber. Nose: Bouquet with notes of incense, green wood, tobacco, coffee and linden. Palate: Generous with hints of red fruits, green hazelnuts and candied apple. Finale: Complex, flavour of stewed fruits and slightly peppery.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
