With this creation, Maison Hennessy set out to pay tribute to one of the family’s historic figureheads, James Hennessy, who conquered new territories and endeavoured to spread the success of Hennessy far beyond the quays of Cognac. In the new blend that carries his name, the Maison’s Master Blender has conceived an elegant and contemporary new cognac, which slowly releases its notes.
- COLOUR - Beautiful shades of amber are punctuated by soft highlights of pink and bronze.
- NOSE - Suggestions of mild tobacco and light wisps of smoke combine subtly with toasty aromas. Hints of roasted almonds intermingle and merge with Madagascar vanilla to produce soft and delicately perfumed notes.
- PALATE - The nose follows through to a palate of elegance and restraint, enhanced by fresher flavours reminiscent of apricot, then pistachio and blood peach. This aromatic subtlety is echoed by the purity and textured precision found in James Hennessy. This cognac, silky yet well structured, evokes both the suppleness of a finely woven fabric and the airy lightness of a génoise sponge: a universe where natural character and perfection become entwined. James Hennessy expands across the palate, revealing endless layers of warm fruit flavours. In order to appreciate all of its nuances, it could therefore be enjoyed neat or over ice.
