Cognac Prunier XO

  1. $108
A particularly fruit-forward Cognac, look for candied--orange peel, ripe grapes and stone fruit on the first sips, which soon mellow to stewed-fruit flavors on the caramel--coated finish. Savory, mouthwatering rancio notes make for addictive sipping. Made with brandies aged 20–50 years.  — K.N.  (12/31/2013)

Distillerie du Peyrat XO

  1. $150
Peyrat is one of the few producers to focus on certified organic Cognac—this one is certified by France’s Ecocert, with USDA certification still in the works. Organic or not, this is a beauty, rich in Sherry and birch beer-like notes, dappled with cinnamon and allspice. The dry finish suggests accents of spiced cocoa and leather.  — K.N.  (12/31/2013)

Le Réviseur XO Fine Petite Champagne Single Estate Cognac

  • Best Buy
  1. $50
Aromas feature plums, red berries, raisins, cherry preserves and poppy seed. The palate entry is sleek and woody sweet; the midpalate finds flavors of pipe tobacco, marzipan, dark caramel, fudge and chocolate orange. Finishes stately yet vivacious. Find and buy.  — P.P.  (3/1/2007)

Domaine Chateau de Fontpinot Cognac XO

  1. $95
This is a mellow, easy-sipping spirit with a copper penny color and bright aromas of pears, honey and Sherry, opening up later to a more pronounced caramel scent. On the tongue, look for coffee, hazelnuts, rancio and bittersweet cocoa, tapering off to a pleasingly smooth, elegant caramel note.  — K.N.  (12/31/2010)

Cognac Paul Giraud XO

  1. $90
Like gingerbread in a glass, this topaz-hued and highly aromatic brandy offers bold baking spice, orange peel and floral notes, and an elegant, spicy finish, with flavors of ginger and clove.  — K.N.  (12/31/2013)

Jean Fillioux Cep D’Or

  1. $90
Rich and luxurious, this 12-year-old “Tres Vielle” Cognac offers deep toffee and hazelnut flavors, before tapering off to a cocoa and espresso-inflected finish. It’s a well-structured brandy that puts you in mind of a leather club chair—you just want to close your eyes and sink into it.  — K.N.  (12/31/2013)

Martell Cordon Bleu Grand Classic Cognac

  • Best Buy
  1. $85
The wonderful bouquet offers scents of walnuts, dried flowers, dried pears and white raisins. Palate entry is languid, oily, buttery and decadently rich; the silky, rich midpalate exhibits complete flavor integration with prune and raisin tastes. Finishes extended, smooth as satin, medium-weighted and a bit caramel-like. Love it.  — P.P.  (10/1/2009)

Martell Creation Grand Extra Cognac

  1. $299
The nosing passes find aromas of cherries, strawberries, blueberries, white chocolate, prunes and black raisins with subtle hints of oak. Palate entry is full-weighted, long and nougat-sweet; midpalate is multilayered with aspects of dried fruits, pastry fillings, brown butter and dryness. Concludes extended, but dry and cocoa bean-like. Supremely satisfying.  — P.P.  (10/1/2009)
