A Cognac that is vs is a blend of cognacs, so there is no way to tell how old it is. I think generally that a vs is 3 to 5 years old. If it is an xo it will have a number of years on the bottle, for example 30 years. This is how old the cognac was at the date of bottling and as old as it will be when it is opened

      I have a bottle of Hennessy VS standing in my attic at least 10 years old ... I was wondering if anyone knows how to determine the exact number of years of this bottle?

        I bought this cognac today. I took it out, poured some on my finest glass, let it sit for 10 minutes. It tastes ok. I can see why people like this liqueur. It has a fruty flavour at the end whic s hard to describe. I guess I'll be getting an XO soon from the smaller makers to see what the fus is about. Right now, this cognac seems to be destined for coke and ice.

          RE Jennifer's Hennessy XXX. The cognac grade of VS is AKA *** (three star). Maybe his group drank VS and came up with a slang of XXX because of the sexual connotation. Just a guess. Good luck. DrD

            VS has a really long nose…that oak smell clings to your nose like a perfect Sunday, good book by the fire place. Tastes so wood…as cognac lover Hennessey is my first experience and best ever. XO is next.

                I bought a small bottle of Hennessey, and a larger bottle of Salignac VS Cognac, and though I’m no cognac connoisseur, the Salignac was surprisingly much smoother and better tasting to me. Compared to Hennessey cognac, Salignac was clearly the better of the two.
