Inspired by a cognac created in 1817 in response to a request from the future king of England, George IV, Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège has built its reputation across nearly 2 centuries. Today Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège has become established as the world’s favorite VSOP Cognac, and is recognised for its harmonious and well-structured blend. On the nose, the first fragrances perceived are soft spices such as vanilla, clove and cinnamon. Then delicate toasted notes follow, arising from the maturation in oak barrels. On the palate, the natural balance of strength and smoothness creates a harmonious blend in which maturity combines with vigor. The structure is softened by a suggestion of fresh grape character. The highlight of tasting Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège is the long-lasting finish, revealing the natural balance of the blend – testament to a superior cognac.
