Buy Delamain Cognac Pale and Dry XO
Blended from Cognacs of an average age of 25 years, this is a transparent, pale gold spirit marked by notes of vine flower and grape, with a delicate, refinement texture ending on notes of grape, toast and vanilla.
Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Bold and butterscotchy, this easy-drinking Cognac also has dried fruit and nutty tones, plus a saline touch that’s reminiscent of salted caramel. There’s a spicy flourish on the relatively dry finish. Delamain notes that it is one of the only Cognac houses to exclude VS and VSOP expressions from its portfolio, “its range starts where others end, with an X.O.” - K.N.  (Dec 2013)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - (UB Collection,Finalist,Tried & True Award)- Aromas are pretty with honeysuckle and hints of dried peach. Sweet in the mouth, the texture is clean and crisp. Stone fruit flavors mix with baking spices like nutmeg and mace before revealing a rich coffee and toffee finish. (Mar 2015)

Pale & Dry gets its name from its natural color—much lighter than most eau-de-vie its age—and its natural level of sweetness. Unlike many in the region, Delamain never uses the permissible amounts of caramel or sugar to modify the taste or color of its brandy. Instead they strive for the purest expression of Grande Champagne Cognac.

Other text
Delamain Pale & Dry Très Belle Grande Champagne Cognac was introduced as Delamain's standard-bearer in 1920, and represents 80 percent of the firm's production. The label is a reproduction of a 17th century engraving of the town and Château of Jarnac by Claude Chastillon. Named to reflect its clean, dry purity of flavor, it is blended from a range of Cognacs averaging 25 years of age. Through the evaporation of alcohol over time, it has been naturally reduced to approximately 53 percent alcohol; the final dilution is accomplished by the gradual addition of "vieilles faibles," literally, very old, weak Grand Champagne Cognacs of 15 percent alcohol, to a final strength of 40 percent

Producer
Delamain & Co. holds the most distinguished range of brandy in Cognac. The portfolio begins with the Pale and Dry XO, matured for more than three times the required aging period for the category, and ends with the Le Voyage, an irreplaceable blend of extremely old stocks.
