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.
The original X.O Cognac is both elegant and complex, aged and blended to be bold, rich, and persistent.
Warmth. Strength. Family. These are the characteristics that have brought East and West together over one shared tradition: Hennessy X.O. It is full of endless layers of flavors such as sweet notes, rising heat, spicy edges, flowing flames, chocolate lulls and wood crunches. Each drop of Hennessy X.O is an Odyssey. With every sip, a new place is discovered, a distinct sensation felt and an extraordinary story shared. To celebrate the Year of the Dog, Hennessy has partnered with the Chinese artist Shan Jiang to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art that merges the East and West.
A blend of 100 eaux-de-vie, its deep amber color is a sign of its intensity. At once rich and robust, it constantly reveals layers of flavors with distinctive persistence on the palate.
