LOUIS XIII RARE CASK 42,6 signalled its distinction with an alcohol degree beyond the expected 40 percent, 42,6 degrees. But the level of alcohol is merely a signal. What sets a Rare Cask apart is the quite astonishing richness and intensity of its flavours. At the heart of the composition are those prized autumn flavours of nuts and dried fruit "? the long-aged flavours for which LOUIS XIII is renowned - no surprise since this cask is by its nature born to the LOUIS XIII tradition.
When you are looking for a cognac drink like NO other, this xo cognac is second to none.
Alongside those autumn aromas, LOUIS XIII RARE CASK 42,6 declares its distinction with notes of plum and date, mingling with flavours of gingerbread and prune stone, punctuated by a final touch of tobacco leaf.
The decanter of LOUIS XIII RARE CASK 42,6 distinguishes itself with refined details: the ring around the neck is enveloped in 22 carat rose gold, engraved on each side with finely worked quadrilobe motifs. And of course, each decanter is engraved with the numeral that sets this Rare Cask apart from all others.
A fabulously detailed forged-metal 'strongbox' is sealed by a plaque that matches the precious neck chosen for the decanter.
The surface of the coffret is patterned with a quadrilobe motif that makes reference to the royal fleur-de-lys of France.
As the halves of the coffret part, the interior is illuminated and the luster of black crystal and rose gold is displayed to sublime effect. Mirrors contribute to the play of light on sparkling crystal details.
