X.O (Extra Old) is the result of craftsmanship that has been honed for over a century.
The powerful eaux-de-vie in this blend achieve a roundness over time – the result is a bold, rich cognac. An icon of Hennessy, X.O has remained unchanged since its creation.
Around 100 of the finest eaux-de-vie are carefully selected and aged to create this sophisticated blend.
Nose: The intriguing sensation of an intense, rising heat slowly reveals the complex taste of eaux-de-vie patiently aged in oak barrels.
Palate: The palate is warmly embraced by flavours of candied fruit. Perception of a strong spicy cognac note, tantalising the lips and palate with its distinct peppery flavour intertwined with a hint of chocolate.
Finish: There is the gradual discovery of something very familiar. It is the well-rounded flavour of a rich, dark chocolate. The evanescent oak notes leave a long, omnipresent finish in their wake. Seemingly endless, it echoes all of the subtleties of each taste and sensation that has preceded it.
