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 for seven years at the Assommoir – Montréal.
I chose the Calvados Boulard XO for its finesse and offer an upscale cocktail.
I created this recipe to put the Calvados Boulard XO value without distorting it.
The “fruit permis” (allowed fruit) is a fresh, slightly sweet and spicy cocktail without covering the taste of Calvados.
