Blended using eaux-de-vie from CognacŸ??s top 4 regions. Each batch of wine is double-distilled to achieve the most flavorful, elegant eaux-de-vie possible. Hennessy also possesses the finest selection of old eaux-de-vie in the world. The original X.O since 1870, meaning Extra Old. Selected from 4 premier growing areas. Its intense and deep amber color is a sign of its strength. Its flavors of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its power and roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm, fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognacŸ??s blending and its long aging process.
