The original ‘extra-old’ cognac, first bottled in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for family and friends. Darker and much more complex than the VSOP, with appealing leather and tobacco notes and a touch of spice – a great cigar cognac. Hennessy XO Cognac is one of the world`s truly great spirits. Founded in 1765 by Richard Hennessy and now part of the LVMH group of luxury goods companies, this is the pinnacle of their regular range. It is rich and fruity, complex and nutty and with balance and elegance and divine length. Cigar in one hand, glass of Hennessy XO in the other – and feeling like a lord.
