2016 Best XO Cognac List
For 2016, we did a Cognac XO Top 10 list based on taste.
The best Cognac
We had a look at a lot of data. As we wanted to get closer to popular XO Cognacs, we used different paramters such as social media appreciation & sharing, returning visitors and visits – then we created a little formula. Also please note that this evaluation is not just about taste but about the whole product (elements such as design, price and taste play a role). So this is what our readers tend to prefer.
Please note: This list does not reflect our personal opinion (even though these are good Cognacs). You can buy almost all of the bottles below via our Cognac online shop.
