HENNESSY TASTING NOTES XO INSTITUTIONAL 1080×1080-jpg
The cognac Hennessy X.O. was created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends and introduced a new style of cognac. Hennessy X.O is the Original, the emblematic icon of the House.
Deep and powerful, the eaux-de-vie of this Hennessy X.O cognac are aged in young barrels and marked out by their power and energy, but also by their capacity to achieve a great roundness through time.
Our Tasting Committee has explored every facet of the blend and identified several emotions that were assimilated to an Odyssey through 7 chapters:
Sweet Notes: The palate is warmly embraced by flavors of candied fruit.
Rising Heat: The intriguing sensation of an intense, rising heat slowly reveals the complex taste of eaux-de-vie which patiently aged in oak barrels.
Spicy Edge: Perception of a strong spicy cognac note, tantalising the lips and palate with its distinct peppery flavor intertwined with a hint of chocolate.
Flowing Flame: A wave of warmth grows, crests and then breaks. A robust presence, full and voluptuous, is felt.
Chocolate Lull: There is the gradual discovery of something very familiar. It is the well-rounded flavor of a rich, dark chocolate.
Wood Crunches: A striking sensation is suddenly felt – the vigorous ebb and flow of oak notes interlaced with vanilla.
Infinite Echo: The evanescent oak notes leave a long, omnipresent finish in their wake. Seemingly endless, it echoes all of the subtleties of each taste and sensation that has preceded it.
Tasting colour: Deep and intense amber color and glimpses of mahogany Tasting nose: Black pepper and wild cocoa, with notes of dried, preserved fruits and delicate spicy edge Tasting palate: Chocolate and fruit Tasting finish: spicy finish
