The name Hennessy VSOP Privilège originates from a special order placed by the future King George IV of England when he requested a "Very Special Old Pale". The first shipment was made in 1818, created from a blend of over 60 eaux-de-vie and matured exclusively in French oak. The brand was originally founded by Irish immigrant Richard Hennessy, and is now owned by French luxury goods company LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet-Hennessy). Bottled at 40%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Releases very mature notes, evoking the aroma of fresh fruit coupled with a sensation of suppleness that settles in to underscore the harmony of this cognac.
Palate: The sensation of full body deepens with the flavours of juicy fruits, vanilla, spices and mild tobacco also provided by the vigour of the younger eaux-de-vie.
Finish: Medium length.
