Created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends, Hennessy X.O. was the first Cognac classified as X.O., or “extra old”, because of its extended aging process.
To taste Hennessy X.O. is to embark on a journey of the senses. On the palate, sensations unfold like chapters in a story, each flavor giving way to the next until they are united into a lasting impression—a singular experience of greatness. Careful selection and patient aging craft a Cognac that is smooth yet complex, delicate but strong, bold yet subtle.
A blend of 100 eaux-de-vie, its deep amber color is a sign of its intensity. At once rich and robust, it constantly reveals layers of flavors with distinctive persistence on the palate.
