The Master Blender's Selection No. 4: a Unique Release From Hennessy
This rich, single-batch Cognac is the fourth release in the Master Blender’s Selection series, personally crafted by 8th-generation Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde. The Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection Nº 4 has been matured in red oak, which means the casks used for the blend have previously held Cognac and are of a significant age - signified by their dark, reddish color.
The House of Hennessy specializes in distilling their eaux-de-vie without the lees for a smooth, clean palate and utilize humid cellars for a steady maturation. Combined with the qualities of aged red oak, the result is a Cognac bursting with fresh aromas and sumptuous, deep fruit flavors that linger on the palate.
Each new Master’s Blender Selection is as highly anticipated as the last, showing the skill that Renaud Fillioux de Gironde puts into his choice of casks. With complete freedom to experiment with new blends, he is able to create singular batches that will never be repeated. Once they’re gone - they’re gone for good.
Presentation of the Bottle
Like its predecessors, the Hennessy Master Blender's Selection No. 4 comes in a modern bottle featuring a squared-off neck, wooden cork stopper and a white label with blue text. The cork is sealed with a paper seal of authenticity, carrying the Master Blender’s signature as well as batch and bottle number.
How to Enjoy Hennessy Master Blender's Selection No. 4
This one-off limited edition is one to spend your time with. Pour into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds to allow the fruit aromas to fully develop before taking a sip. If you wish, you may lower the alcohol volume slightly with the addition of a few drops of mineral water. This modern blend is also perfect for mixing in craft cocktails.
About Hennessy Cognac
You may think, that with Hennessy’s ability to innovate and push boundaries, they are a thoroughly ‘modern’ Cognac brand. This is a large part of their immense success and influence. The very French brand based in the Charente region, in fact, dates all the way back to 1765 - to Ireland - but have managed to shapeshift enough times to remain more relevant than ever before - with current Master Blender Renaud Fillioux. Their range of uber-trendy products is ever expanding, and their marketing campaigns all the more captivating. There is no doubt that ‘Henny’ culture is alive and kicking: both Cognac and a fifth of Hennessy are mentioned in what seems like hundreds of songs.
