THE ORIGINAL X.O COGNAC
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.
PRODUCER'S TASTING NOTES
Nose: The first wave, rich in dried-fruit aromas such as prunes and dried figs overcomes you. The aromas evolve to a more dense notes of chocolate and black pepper, mellowed by cinnamon, clove and cardamom.
Palate: Very balanced on the palate, XO confirms the aromas discovered by scent: dried fruit and chocolate. Elegant and robust, it reveals balance, roundness and harmony among aromas underlined by the strength of peppery notes and vegetable fragrances from the oak.
Finish: A lovely long aftertaste is enrobed in velvet, conferring the last sweet notes of cinnamon and vanilla.
