Medium amber colour; orange rind, butterscotch/caramel, dried fruit aromas with hints of vanilla and plums; rich, smooth and flavourful on the palate; long finish
Sweet and spicy toffee notes on the nose. Rich and aromatic sweet spirit dominates. Chocolate flavours on a long palate.
Rich, full-bodied and complex, Hennessy X.O combines the spicy aromas of oak and leather with the sweeter essences of flowers and ripe fruit. Well-balanced, the initial flourish is dominated by the powerful suggestion of pepper and rancio, which testify to the long years it has spent being aged. Complex and long-lasting.
Its intense and deep amber color is a sign of its strength. Its flavors of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’ s blending and its long aging process.
