Hennessy XO is darker and much more complex than the VSOP, with appealing leather and tobacco notes and a touch of spice – a great cigar Cognac.
Hennessy XO was created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends. X.O was born at a turning point in history and introduced a new style of cognac: bold, rich and complex. XO combines the spicy aromas of oak and leather with the sweeter essences of flowers and ripe fruit. Well-balanced, the initial flourish is dominated by the powerful suggestion of pepper and rancio, which testify to the long years it has spent being aged.
