ABOUT THIS COGNAC
The original Extra-Old Cognac, first bottled in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for family and friends. Darker and much more complex than the VSOP, with appealing leather and tobacco notes and a touch of spice, a great cigar Cognac. A blend of 100 Eaux-de-vie, its deep amber color is a sign of its intensity. At once rich and robust, it constantly reveals layers of flavors with distinctive persistence on the palate.
A continuing dialogue between the past and present, a blend of the Grand Siècles, this Cognac cannot be explained. It simply must be understood. Rare and precious, it is a product of man’s mastery over time. An unparalleled range of aromas gives this Cognac its unique complexity. Powerful and unexpected, Hennessy XO reaches heights that approach Cognac perfection.
