This L’Encantada XO bottling is a cooperative project between PM Spirits and groundbreaking Armagnac caskhunters L'Encantada.

Based in Vic-Fezensac, Southern France, L'Encantada curates Armagnac selections based on, as they say, “authenticity, tradition and know-how.” Their operation started small, after one of the partners, a caterer, was approached by a widow about selling her late husbands casks of Armagnac.

L."Encantada producers distill directly in the heart of their fields, with a mobile Alambic Armagnacais stll, before L'Encantada matures the juice in oak, resting in Gascony.

Their cellar master’s selections are "barrel raw", neither their color, nor their alcohol content, are modified. Often, L’Encantada releases feature distillers who are no longer in active production, their juice from oft the last they will ever release.

L'Encantada is the darling of Bourbon Whiskey Clubs, offering power, richness, and excitement for Whiskey drinkers looking to explore.

XO Marks the Spot (With Brandy) PM Spirits' new Armagnac is comprised of four single vintage casks. The XO’s bouquet consists of caramel, coffee and a whiff of sandalwood. The first sip reveals a smokiness you might find in a Japanese single malt or Scotch from Islay. The subtle suggestion of peat quickly yields to more traditional Armagnac flavors such as quince, strawberry jam and orange peel. There’s a bit of oakiness in there as well which, while uncommon for brandy, really ties this one together. The finish is languid and balmy, like a midsummer’s afternoon in Gascony. Yes, XO truly evokes a specific and special sense of place. Only 1,600 bottles exist, and the liquid therein is a cask strength 46.8% ABV.
