Hennessy Red Blend Cognac Xo 2008
Great grandson of the Founder of the House of Hennessy, Maurice Hennessy, was inspired by his intuition that modernity and rarity would be come synonymous - hence he created this original "eXtra Old" cognac, which the House of Hennessy say is the finest XO since 1870. Hennessy XO is a blend of around one hundred old "eaux-de-vie" from Cognac's finest growing regions, which are carefully matured in their cellars. This is a spicy and structured cognac, with vanilla and cinnamon on the palate. It can be served neat, but is often enjoyed on the rocks.

<p>Hennessy Paradis is a blend of over one hundred very old "eaux-de-vie" from Cognac's finest growing regions. Hennessy Paradis was created in 1979 by Maurice Fillioux. He chose to blend "eaux-e-vie" which had been selected by his grandfather.
