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. It is a blend of 100 eaux-de-vie, its deep amber colour is a sign of its intensity. At once rich and robust, it constantly reveals layers of flavours with distinctive persistence on the palate.
Rich, full-bodied and complex, XO combines the spicy aromas of oak and leather with the sweeter essences of flowers and ripe fruit. Well-balanced, the initial flourish is dominated by the powerful suggestion of pepper and rancio, which testify to the long years it has spent being aged.
