Proof66 Notes

Comandon XO ("extra old") cognac is their premium expression, which they say is a blend of over 125 different cognacs. The average age of cognac is 25 years in Limousin oak but they cheerfully admit to blending the old and young to create a balance. They note that the finish will last as long as (an astounding) 20 minutes on the palate after swallowing. They are bottled and labeled by hand with individual numbers and claim to be in limited supplies.

Comandon XO was named Best Cognac in the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Maison Comandon was founded in 1821 by the then 20yr old Pierre Comandon in Jarnac on the Charente River. (Both Pierre and, later, his son Louis were involved in Jarnac politics.) Family owned and independent to this day they are proud of the fact that all parts of their cognac production are on site and in their control. It is this fact that they feel gives their cognac a unique personality.
