Hennessy V.S.O.P Cognac

Product Description

Since its founding in 1765, Hennessy has been guided by a passion to craft the world’s finest Cognacs – our drive to Never Stop. Never Settle. Hennessy Cognac is crafted with a strict set of standards defined by the Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde and handed down from generation to generation.

However, when it comes to enjoying Cognac, we haven’t followed any rules since 1765. In perpetuating the legacy of the original V.S.O.P – especially conceived by Hennessy in 1817 for the English Prince Regent, who would become George IV – the objective of the Hennessy master blenders has always been to create a complete and harmonious blend: the definitive expression of a perfectly balanced cognac. The mellow texture of its oldest Eaux-de-vie perfectly complements the vitality of the youngest, which makes it ideal for any occasion, whether enjoyed on the rocks, as a long drink, or in a more creative mix.

Buy Hennessy V.S.O.P online through Whisky for all and start enjoying a glass of the world’s most loved cognac.

Hennessy is the clear cognac market leader in the category not because of lower prices but rather due to quality, marketing, and name recognition. Indeed, Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege is priced at the high end of the V.S.O.P range of most cognac houses‘ V.S.O.P. offerings.

Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege is the first such cognac to be designated “very special old pale”. It was produced in 1818 at the request of The Prince of Wales and future King George IV of Great Britain.

Hennessy Pure White Cognac, 70cl

The Color

Medium-dark copper.

Fresh and light, the bitter oak is beautifully balanced by the sweet honey that develops as the white grape transforms into a sugary grape compote. The sweetness does not dominate, because within it is a nuttiness and woody bitterness that brings some ground coffee; beautifully balancing out that sweetness. This is my type of cognac, not too fruity or sweet, and nothing really “stands out”; it is not too oak influence, too sweet, spicy, or bitter. The cognac has a harmonious character that delivers a smooth-tasting cognac without noticeable ripples.
