Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points - (UB Collection,Chairman’s Trophy)- Gorgeous orange/copper hue. Seductive fragrance of fresh orange peel is totally delightful and beguiling, but it’s the foundational flavor of XO cognac that gives wings to the orange. Flavor echoes the bouquet perfectly as the orange peel zestiness is matched and supported by the supple spirit base. A masterpiece of the top ranking. (Mar 2015)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The palate is balanced between the citric acid, alcohol, Cognac and wood, with the Cognac always prevailing. Concludes with finesse, a sweet-sour presence, and an incredibly lush texture. (Jun 2006)
96 POINTS - WE - The 100th Anniversary is deep amber in color with orange zest found in the nose; body is thick, syrupy an buttery; palate shows wonderfully bitter orange zest and dates.
