Hennessy Cognac XXO Hors d’Age

An even more mature development of their XO, the Hennessy XXO Hors d’Age Cognac is a head turner, and a must for any avid collector. Hennessy, one of the largest Cognac houses in the world, have dipped into their vast chais to blend a Cognac of the newest age denomination, the XXO.

Officially, the XXO age category is aged for longer than 14 years, but considering this is a Hors d’Age version of their XO, it’s been aged for far, far longer. This is a rich tapestry of Hennessy’s finest spirits, and contains some spirits aged for more than 50 years.

Crafted by Hennessy’s seventh generation Master Blender, Yann Fillioux, is said to be “as pertinent as ever”, “rich”, “expressive” - with notes of bitter orange, freshly grated nutmeg, licorice, peppermint leaf and delicate spices. A true masterpiece.

The introduction of the latest age category has caused a certain buzz throughout the region, and offers an exciting opportunity for cellar masters, blenders and distillers to create something that has never been seen before.

Despite some controversy, the XXO category is now official. And LVMH justified the launch by claiming that it had already used the label before aging terms were developed. In fact, Hennessy made an XXO as early as 1872, but production stopped in the early 20th century.

Presentation of the Cognac Hennessy XXO

The 70cl decanter is an even more contemporary and angular version of the XO decanter. The ‘glass-cut’ shape and chrome stopper give it some serious edge. It is bottled at 40% ABV.

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.
