Delamain Cognac Vesper XO 750ml
Like most Cognac houses, Delamain does not grow grapes but instead purchases eaux-de-vie from trusted grower/distillers who offer their finest spirits for evaluation after each harvest. The selected spirits for Delamain?s Vesper are aged separately in old, 350-liter oak barrels called roux rather than new oak, which would lend too much tannin. After 30 to 35 years of aging, the Cognac is blended, then allowed to age 2 years further to marry the flavors and textures of its components. Instead of using distilled water to bring the alcohol content down to consumption level, Delamain blends in extremely old Cognacs with lower alcohol content.
