Prepare to be taken on an epic journey exploring each and every one of your senses, with the Hennessy XO Extra Old Cognac. The origins of the age denotation ‘Extra Old’ in fact date back to the Hennessy maison, when Master Blender Maurice coined this English term in 1870 in accordance with its strong connection to foreign countries, such as the US and Great Britain. Each of the eaux-de-vie contained within this fine tapestry of spirits are between 10 and 70 years old, and there are more than one hundred of them contained in this fine blend of Hennessy XO. The average age is around 45 years old, making it an exceptionally fine-tuned selection that is bound to be one of your fondest tasting memories for the rest of your life.
This iconic Cognac maison have married the complexities of each terroir and its finest eaux-de-vie into one carefully constructed blend, to create a stunning Hennessy Old Reserve. It is a symphony of notes hailing from the Fine Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois crus, and the result is quite a masculine Extra Old Cognac. Such finesse in its selection suggests that this is pure craftsmanship at work, and warrants the price tag. Hennessy are well known for dipping in and out of many different terroirs across the region to source the most precious eaux-de-vie.
The Extra Old Hennessy is a truly mosaic piece; as the largest Cognac maison worldwide, we can trust that Hennessy know exactly how to make each eau-de-vie work in tandem with one another to create the ultimate sensory experience.
