Hennessy Master Blender
Since its founding in 1765, Hennessy has been guided by a passion to craft the world’s finest Cognacs – our drive to Never Stop. Never Settle. Hennessy Cognac is crafted with a strict set of standards defined by the Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde and handed down from generation to generation. However, when it comes to enjoying Cognac, we haven’t followed any rules since 1765. The Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection Nº1 is a pure expression of unparalleled craftsmanship. Crafted as a single batch, it is the first in a series of rare and limited offerings.
The fourth iteration of this rare blended cognac was created by the maison’s eighth-generation master blender. Made in limited quantities at a higher percentage, its style cannot be replicated.
Drawing from a distinct collection of high-quality eaux-de-vie from the maison’s collection, the master blender has created a fresh, intriguing style with sweet woody notes and fruity aromatics.

Just stumbled on this thread which is unfortunate as I’ve been in the Charente (Maritime version – a.k.a dept 17) for the past month+. Seems pineau de charente is the favored drink here as 5/6th of Cognac production is exported (and not that much available either – locals seem to prefer scottish whiskey for new years by a long mile). Been drinking the local bois ordinaire stuff as I am out near the coast and not inland where the vaunted Grand and Petit champagne areas are.
the usual thing in France; rather careless drivers and innovative parking habits.
Whilst in Armagnac, do get around to producers and sample their Vintage Armagnacs. IMHO a much more noble and priceworthy digestif than Cognac.
Select a base station like Auch or Condom to make excursions in this pretty small area, roughly 100 x 80 km. If you prefer a larger city with more restaurants, a larger selection of hotels, AND willing to spend an hour out and the same back, Toulouse might be your choice
A rather schematic map here just for the connecting roads and Les Terroirs. A good road map is invaluable if you drive yourself.
