Hennessy / V.S.O.P Privilege Cognac / Please click for sizes
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 95 points - A refined and perhaps regal take on France's premier brandy. The palate shows succulent flavors of creme brulees, butter toffee, and baked honey. A pleasant oak-driven astringency provides a deft counterpoint to the indulgent sweet tones..March/2017
Originally created for royalty, Hennessy Privilege is aged up to 15 years to create a velvety, complex blend of delicate spice and honeyed fruit flavors.
A delicate blend of wood notes and spices, punctuated by the scent of cloves and cinnamon. Discreet, subtle and harmonious, it is characterized by a the fragrance of honey and a suggestion of liquorice.
In perpetuating the legacy of the original V.S.O.P (Very Superior Old Pale) – specially conceived by Hennessy in 1817 for the English Prince Regent, who would become George IV – the objective of the Hennessy master blenders has always been to create a complete and harmonious blend: the definitive expression of a perfectly balanced cognac. The mellow texture of its oldest eaux-de-vie perfectly complements the vitality of the youngest, which makes it ideal for any occasion, whether enjoyed on the rocks, as a long drink or in a more creative mix.
