Delamain MD visits Connolly's
Thanks very much to Charles for popping in and showing some of his fabulous Cognacs. The house of Delamain is strongly attached to its tradition of craftsmanship, where all commercial demands take second place behind the drive for the taste of perfection. It is specialised in the ageing and maturing of exceptionall high quality Cognacs.
The historical roots of the house of Delemain, still run to this day by the direct decendants of the founder Patrick Peyrelongue and his cousin Charles Braastad, run deep down into the origins of Cognacm such that it is today one of the oldest names in the region.
The Delamain family boasts amongst its members humanists, scientists and poets alike, such as Jaques Delamain a writer and a great Ornithologist, or Robert Delamain <The History of Cognac>, a superb book still today considered as a work of reference by scholars and Cognac lovers. The Family has remained homogenous and united in the intimacy of a house stepped in memories and traditions handed down by the previous generations.
Pale & Dry X.O
The Pale and dry X.O is a blend produced exclusively from Grand Champagne, the first growth, and aged for many long years, comes draped in extremely bright, light amber rosed, clear and shot through with flashes of gold, that subsequently reveal its remarkably delicate elegance and distinction. Its bouquet is chracterised by the powerfulness and length of the intensely floral aromas backed by the distinctive vanilla of its rancio. Its mellow roundness on the palate blossoms into full-bodied fruitiness of apricots, peach and orange with a slight, harmonious hint of liquorice.
These are stunning Cognacs at reasonable prices.
They also have a range of vintage cognacs available, if you are interested please do not hesitate to contact us.
