Hennessy Black Cognac

Hennessy Cognac

Hennessy Black was introduced to the US market in 2010.  It's a VS cognac designed for use in cocktails or as a long drink with a mixer.  This makes it a pretty versatile cognac to own - one that can be used in so many different ways. Presented in a black bottle (hence the name), it's also rather striking to look at.  A bottle that's best kept out on show, rather than locked away in a cabinet away from view...

This is an extra large, 1 liter bottle size.

Tasting Notes

Black is a cognac for mixing, so it's less round - with a certain punch. Quite fruity due to its age.

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.

        As far as Hennessy Black & Hennessy White , there is no difference. They’re both actually the same liquor only color differential. White Hennessy will no longer be produced after this year.

                I've tasted Hennessy Black in a cocktail this weekend.. and it was great! I would love to taste it neat though - with ice it must be good. How old is this? Four years?

                  01-09-2016 / By Max It was in May of this year when I had the chance of visiting the house of Extra Cognac. I personally think this is a really great cognac. It’s been well marketed, and the decanter is solid and well crafted. It’s clever really, because the bottle is black. Read more about Dark & Intense Read full article...
