Hennessy X.O. is rich, full-bodied, complex, and has always embodied the finest traditions of Hennessy cognac. Originally created in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy using very old eaux-de-vie, XO was reserved exclusively for his family and friends. XO is blended from more than 100 eaux-de-vie specially selected from the four premier growing areas. Some of the eaux-de-vie used in the blend have been ageing in the Hennessy warehouses since the early part of this century.
To mark the grand finale of Hennessy’s 250-year anniversary marathon, the Cognac giant launches a special edition bottle of its Hennessy X.O Exclusive Collection designed by Tom Dixon: Hennessy X.O. Exclusive Collection 8. For the special edition, the British star designer got inspired by the magical qualities of crystal, diamonds, and precious stones. He chose a sparkling silver to create a relief-like surface for the bottle, to reproduce the sensation of these valuable minerals.
AROMAIts deep and intense amber colour and glimpses of mahogany are an indicator of its power.
The nose is full of rich aromas of black pepper and wild cocoa, softened by notes of dried and preserved fruits with a delicately spicy edge.
FINISHRichly textured, rounded and pleasing, it manages to possess both power and softness at the same time, with a chocolatey hint and an all-encompassing overtone of fruitiness.
