Hennessy XO is a French cognac that was first bottled in 1870 for Maurice Hennessy. Described as a great cigar cognac, Hennessy XO is made from 100 different eaux-de-vies that range between 10 and 70 years. Its rich colour and lightly spiced tones originate from its complex blending and ageing process. ‘XO’ actually stands for extra old, which in the cognac stakes signifies premium quality. Hennessy XO tasting notes include black pepper, cinnamon, prunes, dark chocolate and dried fruit. It has a warm, vanilla finish. The distinct bottle design and overall presentation, coupled with the extraordinary blend of ingredients make this cognac truly one-of-a-kind. Best served neat on the rocks with a roaring fire in the background for that authentic cognac drinking experience.
