For the first time in Kenya, the House of Rémy Martin hosted a multi-sensory and interactive tasting experience ‘Opulence Revealed’ at The Capital Club, Nairobi on 27th November 2018.
Designed to stimulate the senses, the Opulence Revealed experience allowed guests to discover a deeper understanding and appreciation of the finer points of Rémy Martin XO cognac through an exploration of textures, flavours and aromas. Once savoured, one glass is never enough.
The tasting brings to life the intrinsic story of Rémy Martin and XO in an immersive experience through an opulent spread of flavours and delicacies. Guests were treated to a magnificent table revealing the many layers of the XO flavour profile. Decadent chocolate truffles, Parmesan cheese, dried apricots and figs, pistachio cake, walnuts, spices and fruits as well as an array of Jasmine, Iris and Rose flowers. Guests were encouraged to sample and taste these aromas throughout the session.
Rémy Martin XO Cognac is described as having aromas of ripe fruit, with floral notes of jasmine. The palate is rich and viscous with flavours of candied orange, ripe summer fruit, cinnamon, ginger and hazelnuts with a luscious long and lingering finish.
