Damoiseau XO - it tastes like it has lots of added cinnamon flavor. Can't imaging those nearly Fireball level flavors coming from natural aging. I have emailed and PM'd Herve Damoiseau asking if there was any post distillation flavoring but never received a response. Very disappointing from what I assume is a reputable agricole producer.

I just had this last night, and I agree on the cinnamon. I quite liked it however. I do not think this was flavoring as I was doing a side by side with the La Favorite Vieux and it had the same flavor profile. It was also fairly cinnamon heavy (though not quite as much), but it also spent less time in the barrels.
