XO

Hennessy XO was created in 1870 by Hennessy for the personal use of Mr. Maurice Hennessy, his family and freinds.

The 100 eaux-de-vie assembled to create X.O were aged for a long time - some for 30 years - to give an unparalleled robustness. Maurice Hennessy gave the name X.O to this extraordinary "extra old" cognac.

Its intense and deep amber colour is a sign of its strength. Its flavours of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its power and roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac's blending and its long aging process.

At once deep and powerful, its character seduces connoisseurs, who appreciate its undeniable modernity and constant revelation of layers of flavours, whether tasted neat, on ice or with a splash of still or sparkling water.
