Full-bodied and smooth, Hennessy V.S.O.P is a perfectly balanced blend of eaux-de-vie that are between four and 15 years old, with warming notes of vanilla, clove and cinnamon. The bottle is presented in a stunning gift box with four coasters.Artist Julien Colombier, who created the special-edition gift box and coaster design, plays with natural forms such as flowers and vegetation, giving his designs a graphic yet dreamlike quality that captures the essence of Hennessy V.S.O.P.
V.S.O.P PrivilĂ¨ge is a balanced cognac, of exceptional consistency and vitality.
Its wonderful clarity and vibrant shades of mahogany are a mark of this cognacâ€™s fine balance. Â Aromas of spice mingle with very subtle notes of vanilla and light tobacco. Toasty wood notes are imparted by its long and steady maturation in barrels. Â Echoing the balanced and harmonious character of the nose, it shows a well-structured palate, with the mellow texture of the oldest eaux-de-vie perfectly balancing the vitality of the youngest. Subtle notes of brown sugar and candied fruits are complemented by touches of light spice. Full bodied and extremly flavoursome, its broad spectrum of aromatic complexity creates a smooth, rounded and finely balanced Cognac.
