Tasting review

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 Luminous Cognac

Introducing the Hennessy VS Luminous Cognac, a limited edition variant of the classic Hennessy VS. This edition signifies Hennessy's ability to not only move with the times but also make a striking appearance in nightlife settings. The VS, or Very Special, version isn't just exceptional when savored straight in a tumbler or nosing glass, it shines just as brightly in inventive cocktails. Visually, it impresses even before the first sip, revealing its perfect suitability for discotheques and bars. Unlike the classic Hennessy Cognac bottles, the Luminous version radiates a vibrant glow in the dark, promising an unparalleled disco ambiance.

Hennessy VS embodies the prestigious Very Special Cognac of the legendary Maison Hennessy, often regarded as the flagship of the Cognac world. Robust, warm, full-bodied, and brimming with flavor, Hennessy is a true all-rounder. It can be relished neat, on the rocks, or mixed into a cocktail. This "aged" Cognac, with its youthful soul and tantalizing mahogany hue, is a feast for the senses. Although it undoubtedly shines in cocktails, sipping it straight unveils its delicate flavors, reminiscent of roasted almonds, juicy grapes, crisp apples, and citrus fruits. The maturation in French oak barrels is unmistakable and lends an added layer of complexity.

Founded in 1765 by Richard Hennessy, an Irish immigrant in the renowned French wine region of Cognac, the House of Hennessy has a storied legacy. Initially a trading enterprise, Richard's son James later started distilling the fine grape spirits. Even though the house became part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy group in the 1980s, it is currently run by the eighth generation of the Hennessy family. This embodies the harmonious blend of tradition and modernity that Hennessy exemplifies.

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.
