Review for "Hennessy XO Extra Old Cognac"
Eye: Ocher. Nose: A powerful and woody blend, with spicy aromas which are complex, but remain rounded. Figs and plums come to mind. Palate: This rich Cognac brings together oak and leather, with slightly sweet notes of flower and fruit. A well balanced work, with a good sense of pepper and rancio. A masculine XO.

Now Hennessy XO is a total classic. It's the first XO ever, they invented the whole category of Extra Old cognac. The nose is quite intense and rich, the mouth I really like.. and it's slightly smoother on the palate than the Remy XO i'd say. If you like very round, rich, complex, sweet Cognacs with a smooth finish - in a beautiful decanter, this is your Cognac!
I tasted this Cognac review in a blind tasting, compared to other XOs.
