The Hennessy VSOP - Oh So Classic Cocktail is the perfect set to create your favourite cocktails. Because Hennessy VSOP has no limits and in addition to being enjoyed neat and "on the rock", you can now also enjoy it as an Old Fashioned.
Hennessy VSOP is VSOP (Very Special Old Pale) style blended cognac, made from more than 60 eaux-de-vie or eaux-de-vie blended to perfection and aged for 15 years in oak casks to achieve great harmony and balance.
The eaux de vie selected to create Hennessy VSOP stand out for their well-structured character and their ability to evolve well over several years. Smooth and powerful, these eaux-de-vie exhibit an excellent capacity to mature in barrels, where they will evolve to their full potential.
It is a version inspired by the cognac created in 1817 for the future King George IV of Great Britain, who, while still a prince, expressly requested a VSOP from Maison Hennessy, founded in 1765. Today it is one of the best known brandies in the world.
Tasting notes for Hennessy VSOP
Hennessy VSOP has aromas of spices mixed with subtle notes of vanilla and mild tobacco. Toasted wood notes are imparted by the long and stable maturation in casks.
Balance and harmony, thanks to the blend of older eaux-de-vie with younger ones. Subtle notes of brown sugar and candied fruits are complemented by soft spice notes. As complete as it is harmonious, this balance allows a wide range of uses, in a long drink or in a cocktail.
