Hennessy Pure White Review

12 January 2012 18 Comments

Hennessy Pure White is on the market for some while in the Caribbean (Bahamas, Antigua, Aruba, Jamaica) and some countries in Europe.

The bottle states that it is made from “the finest white grapes” and that it expresses the “qualities of the white wines from which it is produced.”  The classic white “Cognac” grapes: ugni blanc, folle blanche and colombard find their way into nearly all cognacs.  So, there is nothing special here….


The different thing about this Cognac are it’s flowery and sweet fruity aromas, it’s very different to the Hennessy Black or the Hennessy VS. For me it is too sweet and fruity, but I can imagine that a this Cognac could be a thirst quencher, cold from the freezer, in the Caribbean.

The bottle-design is also very different than the Cognac-bottles we usually see, quite an refreshing design…

Hennessy used a screw-cap instead of a cork, because a cork could leak after some while, if you store it in the freezer.

Most of todays Cognacs  are chill-filtered, also this Pure White. When you chill filter a spirit, you filter out some of the heavier ‘fats’ which provides a richer flavors. These fats will cloud up when the spirit is chilled, so for purely cosmetic reasons these fats are filtered out.

To enjoy the aromas of Hennessy Pure White, let the bottle cool in ice for a while and drink it on the rocks in a tumbler or as a long drink. Also the mix-ability in cocktails (especially the tropical ones) is noteworthy.

The tasting notes of the Hennessy Pure White Review are:

The color: bright honey, much lighter than the Hennessy VS.
The nose: light flowery aroma, simple, not too aggressive, very subtle.
The taste: an easy drink, very fresh and smooth with flowery and sweet fruity notes.
The aftertaste: quite short and simple with lots of sweet tones.
The age:  between the 15 and 50 years, it tastes much younger….
The origin: Grande Champagne Cognac, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois.
The price: about $40,- in the Bahamas.
The price / quality ratio: a 6,5 out of 10. Very sweet and simple tasting profile. If you prefer a sweet drink in the Caribbean, please consider a nice local aged rum.

    Can i purchase pure white in Boston? If so where .if not where else in Europe can it be purchased as i got it this year in Cognac

  • Danl said:

    Sounds interesting. If you like this cognac you would probably love Delord Blanche Armagnac. Federal Wine & Spirits, sells it in Boston. You should also take a look at some of the smaller cognac producers like Jean Fillioux, or Seguinot, both located in the Grand Champagne region.
