Boulard Calvados XO 0,7 l
|Alcoholic strength||40% vol.|
The amazing Boulard Calvados XO is a particularly fine extra old apple brandy which captivates with a soft and delicate character.
On the nose the shiny amber-colored brandy spreads harmonious notes of tasty flavors of elegant vanilla and a hint of subtle oak which are accompanied by floral notes and juicy apple. Sweet accents translated into toasted almonds and soft violets round off the flavor perfectly. On the palate juicy ripe apples dominate which are surrounded by nuts, light flowers and some exquisite spices. This complex harmony of flavors will be adopted in the long finish of fruity and spicy strikes.
The premium Boulard Calvados XO leaves the impression of pure delight. The Boulard Calvados XO is a particularly good figure after a heavy meal. Many experts who are familiar with Calvados from the Pays d'Auge, denote the fine brandy as a true masterpiece of the Distillery Boulard.
The family run and owned Distillery Boulard was founded in 1825 by Pierre-Auguste Boulard in the town of Coquainvilliers and markets exquisite spirits from France's Normandy region.
Currently the company is in the capable hands and is being led by the Managing Director Vincent Boulard. The distillery owns over 150 acres of orchards with more than 35000 apple trees.
In preparing the sought-after brandies the distillery relies on various distillates based on cider from more than 200 known apple varieties, all of which are matured over a period of 8 to 15 years in oak casks where it will pick up its special color and tannins. The Boulard Calvados XO has evolved over the years to the company's flagship beverage and has met with many experts in great popularity.
With a lot of knowledge, experience and patience the blended apple brandy is produced. A particularly important role is played by the winemaker. He is responsible for the perfect blending and is not satisfied until the best distillates are available. The rarity of Boulard Calvados XO makes it a very coveted product under Brandy lovers.
