Cognac Hennessy - James Hennessy XO
This remarkable cognac with amber hues accented with bronze has layers of sweet, toasty aromas, notes of blond tobacco and smoky scents that combine with toasty accents, roasted almond and Madagascar vanilla.
The elegance and discretion on the palate are underlined by fresh aromas of apricot, pistachio and peach. Silky but structured, it evokes both the suppleness of a fine tapestry and the lightness of a sponge cake. Enjoy it neat or with an ice cube.
Released in 2015 for the 250th anniversary of the house, this cognac pays tribute to Richard Hennessy's son, James Hennessy, one of its iconic historical figures: a pioneering entrepreneur who always knew that exploring new horizons was essential.
For more than 250 years, Hennessy has been producing its exceptional cognacs in the heart of its native region, the Charente. Responsible and committed to the protection of its terroir, Hennessy radiates the excellence of its know-how in every bottle, in more than 160 countries.
A remarkable nose and palate, extreme precision, a bold vision... The Master Blender is the guardian of the unique know-how of the House of Hennessy. For over 200 years, the Hennessy family has entrusted the tasting of its cognacs to the Fillioux family. Renaud Fillioux from Gironde represents the eighth generation in charge of blending cognacs at Hennessy. This lineage has been perpetuated for two centuries.
