When it comes to Cognac, no name commands the same amount of prestige as Hennessy. Established in 1765, the cognac house stands today as the largest producer of the luxurious French brandy boasting annual sales of over 50 million bottles and a very impressive collection of cognac expressions ranging from captivating core offerings to luxurious limited editions as well as a number of specialty bottlings.
Among these is the Hennessy Black Cognac, a VS cognac offering made primarily with mixologists in mind. Made from 45 different eaux-de-vie, each batch of this cognac begins with the eaux-de-vie being carefully blended before being left to mature in used French oak barrels, slowly developing its flavors for at least 2 years before finally being brought to proof and packaged in opaque black bottles that impart it with an air of elegance.
Dark gold in color, the nose of this cognac imparts warm jasmine, honey, and orange notes which then give way to a sweet and intense palate consisting of fresh grapes, more honey and jasmine notes, citrus, perfumed cedar, and touches of floral notes before culminating in a warm, smooth, and woody finish.
