Hennessy XO Carton
Hennessy XO cognac is elegant, complex and combines a strong identity with a unique style. It is a blend of crus such as Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fin Bois.
The ‘extra old’ Hennessy cognac, also called Hennessy XO, was first bottled in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for family and friends. Hennessy XO offers a more complex blend of eau-de-vies between 10-70 years old. Aromas of ripe fruit, spices, wood and a nice alcoholic ‘green’ are strong on the nose. Also the palate is balanced, elegant and has a robust taste of fruits, cinnamon and toasted wood.
Hennessy has a history dating back to 1765. Irishman Richard Hennessy established the company first as an eaux-de-vie trading business. Today, Hennessy is the most successful cognac exporter in the world. It has forced collaborations with other markets like the Hip-Hop scene in the United States. Its estate and headquarters are based in the famous town of Cognac in Charente.
