Eye: Deep copper with flashes of mahogany. 

Nose: Instantly powerful, bursting with woody and spicy aromas - nutmeg, cinnamon bark and clove. 

Palate: Complex yet round, with notes of oak and leather combining with slightly sweet flavors of flower and fruit. Peppery, with good rancio. A rather masculine XO.

Description

Hennessy XO Exclusive Collection 11 2018 by Marc Newson Cognac

The Hennessey XO Exclusive Collection 11 2018 by Marc Newson is eagerly awaited by the legions of Hennessy fans who'll be keen to add this one to their personal Cognac collection. This is the second consecutive year in which the Cognac giant has collaborated with Marc Newson, one of the most talented and innovative designers of the 21st century. As always, the Hennessy XO style - bold and rich, with serious complexity - is the star of the show, beautifully presented in a modern decanter. The House of Hennessy makes Cognacs that truly shine with maturity; in fact, it was Maurice Hennessy himself who first coined the term ‘XO’. 

Specializing in distilling their eaux-de-vie without the lees for a smooth, clean palate, Hennessy also knows how to utilize humid cellars for a steady maturation. As the largest Cognac Maison worldwide, we can trust that Hennessy knows 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. For this edition, Hennessy has collaborated with the renowned industrial designer Marc Newson. A renowned artist described to be 'the most influential designer of his generation'; Newson has been included in Time Magazine's Top 100 of Most Influential People of the World, with his work present in many of the world's major art museums. 

For the 2018 release of the XO Exclusive Collection, Newson chose to highlight the color copper for the bottle to accentuate the liquid contained within. The metallic details and beautifully crafted glass details make this bottle a great unique expression to own. 

Serving Suggestion

Created with extraordinary care, this aged Cognac deserves your full attention. Serve neat in tulip glasses at room temperature, letting it rest for 30 seconds before taking the first sip. Perfect as an after-dinner drink, or enjoyed with rich desserts.

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.
