Maurice Hennessy devised the term “XO” from the words “Extra Old” way back in the 19th century. With its long finish and powerful aromas of oak, old leather and black pepper, this now iconic release of the Maison is a true classic.
100 eaux-de-vie are blended with one another to create the Hennessy XO, with some of them ageing for as long as 30 years prior to bottling.
Candied fruits complement a punchy, spicy nose that when sipped, morphs into a full-bodied spirit with notes of fruit and cocoa.
Add a dash of water at room temperature to open up the complex body of flavours.
