Hennessy X.O (“Extra Old”) is the original X.O, starting the category in 1870. Blended using long aged eaux-de-vies, it was initially blended for the Maison’s family and friends and now celebrates 150 years. Smooth yet complex, delicate but strong, bold yet subtle. Each drop of Hennessy X.O opens a new door to hidden facets of intensity and sophistication. With eaux-de-vie carefully selected and aged for a long time, the result is a cognac that is bold, rich and undeniably rare.
The first wave, rich in dried fruit aromas such as prunes or dried figs, overcomes you. The aromas evolve to more dense notes of chocolate and black pepper, mellowed by cinnamon, clove and cardamom spices.
