X.O. is the core of the Boulard range, a blend of all the flavours from each Calvados in the range. The perfect balance obtained from blending several Calvados varieties from the Pays d'Auge aged between 6 and 15 years. X.O. is an outstanding Calvados recognised for its complex grilled almond and ripe apple aromas and its light, nicely-balanced flavour.
I work at the Barroco restaurant for 4 years.
Unfortunately , Calvados is not known enough for me , best way to get people starting enjoying it is to create easy, making & drinking cocktails to try at home , in this case , this cocktail is more serious & strong , very enjoyable & delicate.
Calvados Boulard XO is probably one of my favorite Calvados, so smooth and delicate.
