Hennessy / Master Blender's No. 2 / 750ml
The Master Blenderâs Selection NÂº2 is a personal blend and a distinctive expression of the Hennessy craft. A hand-selected single-batch Cognac, it is a one-of-a-kind limited offering. Crafted as if it were a recipe for sharing with family and friends, the blend is unique by virtue of its singularity and its hand-curated selection process. Like an intricate freehand portrait, it is an intimate expression of creativity and passion. To evoke the blend, Paris-born illustrator Ugo Gattoni conjured a large-scale dreamscape that captures the meticulous attention to detail that is essential to the Master Blenderâs craft. Master Blenderâs Section NÂº2 is the second in a series, the result of a passion project initiated by former Hennessy Master Blender Yann Fillioux. They are unique Cognacs of limited supply, never to be duplicated. The eaux-de-vie are aged at least 10 years, and were each aged for 18 months in young coarse-grained French oak barrels before being transferred to old barrels for additional aging.
Rich aromas recall its aging in young oak barrels. On the palate it expresses spicy notes with a strong character and rounded finish. It is bottled at 43% to highlight the precision of the blending.
