Hennessy XO Extra Old Cognac - The Original X.O (700ml)
Created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends, X.O was introduced a new style of Cognac without comparison. Hennessy X.O is the Original, the emblematic icon of the House. Deep and powerful, the eaux-de-vie of Hennessy X.O 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.
The palate is warmly embraced by flavours of candied fruit. The intriguing sensation of an intense, rising heat slowly reveals the complex taste of eaux-de-vie that have patiently aged in oak barrels. A wave of warmth grows, crests and then breaks. A robust presence, full and voluptuous, is felt. There is the gradual discovery of something very familiar. It is the well-rounded flavour of a rich, dark chocolate. A striking sensation is suddenly felt – the vigorous ebb and flow of oak notes interlaced with vanilla. he 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.
