This Hennessy X.O. Cognac is a true emblem of the Hennessy Maison. Created in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for his circle of friends, it introduced a new style of cognac. The eaux-de-vie are aged in young barrels, marked by their power and energy, but also their capacity to achieve great roundness over time. The palate is warmly embraced by flavors of candied fruit, with an intriguing sensation of intense, rising heat slowly revealing the complex taste of eaux-de-vie patiently aged in oak barrels. A strong spicy cognac note tantalises the lips and palate with its distinct peppery flavor intertwined with a hint of chocolate. The finish is long and omnipresent, echoing all of the subtleties of each taste and sensation that has preceded it.
