According to their website, as cognac ages, a certain percentage of the spirt evaporates from the oak barrels, filling the air with a “heavenly” aroma. This process is known in the Cognac Region as “The Angel’s Share” and is believed to be consumed by Angels who delight in a private moment of relaxation and enjoyment of a fine nectar
Seraphin XO Cognac is a rich Deep Amber with hints of Gold. The nose (aroma) is Rich and Complex with a balance of Oak with a scent of Prune and Hazelnut undertone. The
Palate is rounded, smooth and subtle with a nutty undertone and a rewarding long rounded finish. The packaging reflects today’s upscale, trend-setting tastes. The bottle is simple, though modern, elegant and full of impact.
Seraphin is bottled and created by Camus, an independent/family-owned Cognac house, managed father to son by five generations since its creation in 1863. Today CAMUS, is managed by Cyril Camus. I had a chance to speak to a rep from Seraphin Cognac (apologies for the background noise – this was at an event) and get reacquainted with the cognac.
