Tasting review

Eye: Deep amber tones - a sign of aromatic complexity.

Nose: We notice some tobacco notes, sweet fruit, well balanced - on the nose. Wood and cinnamon enlighten the nose.

Palate: The palate is round and long, some slight spices hidden here and there. Flavors of honey and walnut come through.

Description

A Cigar Reserve Cognac aged for at least 10 years

As you have probably noticed, Hine has a certain affinity to cigars - and the Hine Cognac XO Cigar Reserve is one of its most robust bottles. A deep, rich and spicy Reserve Cognac that was crafted by Bernard Hine in collaboration with Nicholas Freeman of the cigar purveyors, Hunter and Frankau. In combining their savoir-faire, they have produced a fine bodied blend.

This Cognac is strong like a Havana, yet incredibly balanced. It is a blend of more than 25 different eaux-de-vie, ranging from four of the premium growing areas: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. The spirits come together to produce aromas that are perfect for enjoying alongside a cigar.

As an XO standard Cognac, it has been matured for at least 10 years in oak barrels in the Jarnac cellar of Hine Cognac. How to enjoy This well-balanced Cognac pairs perfectly with a Havana cigar, but is equally subtle enough to be enjoyed neat.

Presentation

We adore the simple bottling and stylish looking case that will sit beautifully alongside your Cognac and cigar collection.

A brilliant cognac

On The Nose:
Tobacco notes, sweet fruit, honey, and a slight hint of wood (over 10 years in oak barrels), well balanced.

Flavor Profile:
The palate is round and long, some slight spices, fresh pepper, and tobacco. A well-balanced cognac that pairs well with a quality, handmade cigar; and yet, plenty of complexity to be enjoyed on its own!

A brilliant cognac.

About Hine Cognac

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine has been producing some of the most exquisite Cognacs for six generations, when it was better known as T Hine & Co Cognac. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards, and the house has a very special tradition of producing relatively small quantities - but with a very high standard in quality. One of their trademarks is to store their vintage casks in damp cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the Thomas Hine Cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town, which differs somewhat to that of the southwestern coast of France. These highly priced vintage bottles are called “Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac”.
