F.

The publication describes Louis Royer XO Cognac as having “Deeply nutty aromas. Midpalate highlights aspects of honey, cocoa and chocolate orange. Aftertaste is luscious, honeyed and profoundly deep.”

The editors of F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal are happy to point consumers in the direction of Louis Royer.”

“We are honored to have Louis Royer XO Cognac take its rightful place among the finest spirits in the world,” says Philippe Pichetto, Export Director, Louis Royer Cognac. “XO is our house’s signature spirit and we consider it quite an achievement to impress Mr. Pacult’s discerning palate. XO offers complexity, balance and authenticity in a single sip. We find that it delights both connoisseurs and newcomers to this noble sipping spirit.”
