Hennessy Master Blender's Selection No. 4
The Master Blender’s Selection N°4 is a personal blend and a distinctive expression of the Hennessy craft. Fresh with a supple elegance, this single-batch was hand-selected by Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde and is the fruit of his creativity. Nothing captures the spirit of craftsmanship at Maison Hennessy more than the Master Blender’s Selection. N°4 is one of a unique series of limited edition releases, curated with freedom by the master blender, as unlike other Hennessy Cognacs, it will not be replicated. A truly one of a kind Cognac, that can be described as mastered simplicity with a modern touch of sophistication.
As the largest Cognac producer in the world, Hennessy dominates the Cognac region and spreads over the four grand cru regions including; Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. With the largest reserve of eaux-de-vie worldwide, the choice of aromas means that this Cognac house has the ability to create some of the most exquisite and complex Cognac blends the industry has to offer. Matured in oak casks following double distillation in copper stills, the refined quality and pioneering know-how are what gave the House of Hennessy the world-class legacy that it owns today.

It packs more "punch" than many other cognacs with its 43% ABV, only to reveal its expressive range of flavors, balanced between wood, spice, apricot and maybe almond. The Champagnes crus are also...
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.
