Description: Hennessy XO is darker and much more complex than the VSOP, with appealing leather and tobacco notes and a touch of spice, a great cigar Cognac. A blend of 100 eaux-de-vie, its deep amber color is a sign of its intensity.
• Nose - The first wave, rich in dried-fruit aromas such as prunes and dried figs overcomes you. The aromas evolve to more dense notes of chocolate and black pepper, mellowed by cinnamon, clove and cardamom.
• Taste - 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.
