Happy 250th Anniversary to Hennessy!

World-renown Hennessy just turned 250 years old. To commemorate the momentous occasion, the Hennessy 250 Collector Blend was created. It’s a fitting tribute to excellence, artistry, and passion of this universally recognized brand.

 

This distinctive cognac is the product of an exceptional blending and aging processes. Hennessy Master Blender, Yann Fillioux, is responsible for its creation. It is an expertly assembled blend of eau-de-vie liqueurs aged anywhere between 15 and 35 years which are hand selected to achieve a perfectly balanced marriage of power and elegance. The final blend was aged in 250 specially crafted barrels, each containing 250 liters. The magical liquid rested peacefully in a in-ground cellar near the banks of the picturesque river Charente.

 

Tasting Notes: Rich and expressive on the nose, developing complex aromatic tones ranging from vegetal to spicy: bitter orange and freshly grated nutmeg, liquorice, dried peppermint leaf and delicate spices with notes of saffron. Exceptionally nuanced, racy and spicy, with broad mid-palate properties. It emanates exquisite elegance, with a powerful persistence on the finish.

 

Hennessy 250 Blend: (One Liter Bottle) $549.99
