Hennessy Paradis Extra Cognac

Hennessy Cognac

This cognac comes directly from Paradise, at least thats what one could think reading the name. Actually it comes from the 19th century: Cognac Hennessy Paradis is a XO, and comes in a 70 cl decanter, 40% ABV. Its blend is a very fine one, combining over 100 different eaux-de-vie spirits, some of them were distilled in 1880.

Tasting Notes

The Paradis color is bronze-copper, on the nose: Some notes reveal some slight pepper, spicy aromas - then fruits and dry roses. On the palate: We discover a delicate rancio, full fruits - finally a bomb of different aromas, great balanced length and very round.

Hennessy Jas (et Cie) - the world famous Cognac producer Hennessy has a history dating back to 1765 when the company was established by Irishman Richard Hennessy. Initially an eaux-de-vie trading business, Hennessy was going to become the most successful Cognac exporter in the world. Today, part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy Group, the company remains to be amongst the most innovative Cognac companies around, forcing collaborations with new markets such as the Hip Hop scene in the US. Its estate and headquarters are based in the famous town of Cognac in Charente.

      Matterhorn Restaurant in Ohakune, NZ have the pleasure of this cognac, and a few other fine ones e.g. Cordon Bleu / Hennessy XO.The cognac is everything the tasting notes say, but develops even more flavours after airing for 60 - 90 mins, e.g. wood and almonds on the nose and something like wood, leather and old cognac on the palate plus cedar in the aftertaste. It's complex and it'll take a few more tries to really nail this one down!

        "Its blend is a very fine one, combining over 100 different eaux-de-vie spirits"I just wonder.Why do they want to make a blend of 100 different eaux-de-vies?Or did they just add a liter from the entire inventory?Why not just pick 2 or 3 of the best and skip the secondary quality?Instead of buying the boring Paradise buy these three good bottles of cognacs -and save money!http://www.cognac-jeanfillioux.com/g21anglais.htmlLeopold Gourmel:http://www.drinkspirits.com/cognac/leopold-gourmel-cognac/or my favourite Normandin-Mercier:Normandin Mercier Petite Champagne Vieille 30 years 46%

          I'm happy if he keeps drinking Hennessy - it leaves the decent stuff for the rest of us...

            this is the Hennessy cognac Kim Jong Il used to import for 800.000 USD per year. will his son continue drinking this rare and expensive eaux-de-vie? hmm.. I doubt it.. he might turn his back on Hennessy, and go for whisky or vodka?
