Hennessy Jas (et Cie) – the world famous Cognac producer Hennessy has a history dating back to 1765 when the company was established by Irishman Richard Hennessy. Initially an eaux-de-vie trading business, Hennessy was going to become the most successful Cognac exporter in the world. Today, part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy Group, the company remains to be amongst the most innovative Cognac companies around, forcing collaborations with new markets such as the Hip Hop scene in the US. Its estate and headquarters are based in the famous town of Cognac in Charente.
It’s a powerful and rather woody blend, with spicy aromas, complex but remains round. This rich cognac brings oak and leather together with slightly sweet notes of flower and fruit. A well balanced work, with a good sense of pepper and rancio. More a masculine XO.
