Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilège Cognac is a blend of more than 60 individual eaux-de-vie, or aged cognacs. These cognacs are carefully aged up to 15 years and blended in oak casks to create a velvety, complex blend of delicate spice and honeyed fruit flavors. V.S.O.P. stands for “very superior old pale.” Enjoy neat, on the rocks or in refined cocktails.
Nose: Fruit aromas with hints of honey.
Palate: Notes of vanilla, clove, cinnamon, and candied fruit.
Finish: Dominated by woody notes.
The dynastic Hennessy family has been dominating the Cognac industry for two and a half centuries. In 1765, Richard Hennessy, an Irish officer serving in Louis XV’s army, set out to create the world’s finest cognac. The refined and highly popularized elixir became a thriving export business, shipping as far as Ireland, Britain, and all throughout Europe.
