Tasting Notes

It's a powerful and rather woody blend, with spicy aromas, complex but remains round. This rich cognac brings oak and leather together with slightly sweet notes of flower and fruit. A well balanced work, with a good sense of pepper and rancio. More a masculine XO.

Value for money

A good classic

An interesting Cognac. Quite sour on the nose, and then fairly explodes on first taste - mellowing after the first hit. Aftertaste is long, becoming rounder and more mellow as it evolves.

Hennessy XO is a tota classic, but..

Now Hennessy XO is a total classic. It's the first XO ever, they invented the whole category of Extra Old cognac. The nose is quite intense and rich, the mouth I really like.. and it's slightly smoother on the palate than the Remy XO i'd say. If you like very round, rich, complex, sweet Cognacs with a smooth finish - in a beautiful decanter, this is your Cognac!
I tasted this Cognac review in a blind tasting, compared to other XOs.

For those of you openminded try a cognac without added vanilla. Check out a better destilled product at a lower price:http://www.cognac-expert.com/extra-cognac/leopold-gourmel-extra-cognac-age-des-fleurs-15-carats?page-comment_b5457107=1#writeReview

                      I have the Remy Martin, Courvoisier, Baron Otard and Hennessy XOs and have to say that of all of them the Hennessy is my favourite. It's just my own taste but wood, leather and jasmine are my favourite tasting notes!

                        Jacki 2012-04-13

                        I tried Hennessy XO in a restaurant the other day and I must say it's really good. A bit too much of wood, but still very round. a good cognac!

                          Garden 2012-04-08

                          Hennessy XO is really something for beginners.. for quite a high price. I mean, value for money wise, this cognac is not really the greatest. But, it's a rather female, soft XO with a nice finish. If you want a good cognac, which is available everywhere, you will buy Hennessy XO. Compared to Martell XO for example it's really rounder and softer.. but not everyone likes that.

                                        Agree above, since I first tasted a XO - it was a Hennessy. Thx for opening my eyes for this cognac (or better opened my mouth :-)

                                          The best cognac I know! You know what you get, and it's good quality. I've had other XOs and I was not always pleased..
