Eye: Deep golden color with flashes of ruby.

Nose: Wild Limousin oak rises from the glass, alongside grilled almonds, hazelnut and vanilla. There’s a warming presence of vanilla at the back and just a hint of ground ginger.

Palate: Fresh grape and green apples at the forefront, representing the younger elements in the blend, followed by more mature flavors of orange and wood staves. The ginger on the nose slowly develops into a finish of warming winter spices - cinnamon and clove.

Description

Hennessy VS Limited Edition by Scott Campbell Cognac

A limited-edition version of a timeless icon, the Hennessy VS is true to its origins, but always looking to the future. 40 different eaux-de-vie from across all Cognac regions are used in the blend, with a minimum age of two years and some aged up to five. To create the eaux-de-vie for Hennessy’s signature, the finest Ugni Blanc grapes are selected, fermented and distilled twice in copper pot stills, known locally as alembic charentais. After distillation, only the best eaux-de-vie will be selected during tasting sessions held by a select committee of experts, with the final blend crafted by Hennessy’s eighth-generation master blender, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde. Maison Hennessy uses casks of French Limousin oak to age their VS Cognac, imparting a robust, nutty note to complement the light and fruity grape characteristics. A rare edition of a true classic, this is a selection that is memorable on all levels.

Always seeking to innovate, on 27th of June Hennessy introduced a new Hennessy VS Limited edition together with Scott Campbell, a New York–based American artist and tattoo artist. Offering a contemporary edge to a Cognac of heritage, the artistic edge of this bottle reworks a classic into one of modern flair. It still embodies all the benefits of the classic VS, but is displayed in a way that offers an enticing new edge.

Presentation of the bottle

Optimsing grey and silver shadows, with fine lines and bold statement pieces, this Cognac certainly captures attention. A true work of art that would typically be printed as a tattoo, the attention to detail is worthy of appreciation. Taking the classic VS display and bringing it to life, this is a showcase you won’t forget. Perfect for a party if you want your offering to be the start of the show.

How to enjoy

Best enjoyed on its own in a tulip glass to tease the aromas to the surface. Also lends well to being paired with ice. House of Hennessy ambassador Marc Boissonet recommends keeping it simple by adding bubbles: “A nice burgundy glass with a solid ice cube and a dash of sparkling water… that’s a way to enjoy it.”

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.
