Hennessy Fine de Cognac VSOP

22 January 2010 8 Comments

In 1817, the future King George IV of England asked Hennessy to supply him with a very superior, old and pale cognac. By the end of the 19th century, V.S.O.P, as it had become known, had firmly established its reputation among the nobility. The product of a gradual blend of over 60 eaux de vie taken from the four leading vineyards (Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois) in the Cognac region, V.S.O.P is slowly matured in old barrels from which most of the tannin has been extracted.

This VSOP cognac is well put together. However, I would recommend the Remy Martin VSOP as a better choice. The Rémy Martin VSOP is slightly more complex.

This Hennessy VSOP is quite soft in comparing with the Hennessy VS, which is quite heavy.

The tasting notes of the Hennessy Fine de Cognac VSOP are:

The color: clear amber.
The fragrance: floral tones with a hint of lemon, honey, and a subtle oak overtones.
The taste: light of taste, blossoms, fruit, honey, and spices. Silky with a fine length.
The after-taste: Soft in the mouth with a reasonable length.
The origin: Grande and Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois.
The age: at least 4 years, and up to 25 years.
Price: about €40,-
