Hennessy XO Case Experience 2020 Cognac: a New Look for a Classic Expression

Originally created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends, the Hennessy XO Case Experience 2020 Cognac has received a makeover to flawlessly combine the traditional with the  modern. As always, the Hennessy XO style - bold and rich, with serious complexity - feels as unique as it did in the 19th Century when it was first introduced. Labelled as an Extra Old blend, it comprises some 100 eaux-de-vie from various Cognac regions, each aged for a minimum of 12 years. The average age is said to be around 45 years old, making it an exceptionally fine-tuned selection that is perfect for sharing with friends. The House of Hennessy values the importance of using mature Cognacs in their blends; in fact, it was Maurice himself who first coined the term ‘XO’. 

The House of Hennessy specializes in distilling their eaux-de-vie without the lees for a smooth, clean palate and utilize humid cellars for a steady maturation. Combined with the qualities of extended maturation, the result here is a Cognac bursting with candied fruit notes and a sumptuous hint of cocoa that lingers on the palate. As the largest Cognac maison worldwide, we can trust that Hennessy know exactly how to make each eau-de-vie work in tandem with one another to create the ultimate sensory experience.

Presentation of the Bottle

The Hennessy XO decanter, with its glass details and curvaceous shape, is still one of the most recognizable Cognacs in the world. It has been reinvented time and time again since 1870, and this limited 2020 edition features an innovative case that turns into an ice bucket. 

Serving Suggestion

Deep and powerful, this Cognac is equally exquisite whether it’s served neat, on ice or with a splash of still or sparkling water. Regardless of how you like to drink it, we recommend you take the time to share it with your circle of friends - just like Maurice himself did.

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.
