Cognac 'XO' by Hennessy was originnaly made in 1870 along the Charente River. It is made up of more than one hundred brandies (some dating back to the beginning of the last century) which come from the largest reserves of old Cognacs in the world and which rest well preserved in the Hennessy cellars. This 'extra old' was created by Maurice Hennessy for his circle of friends, having a desire to produce something unique that never existed. The blend contains a selection of spirits aged between 12 and 30 years in order to give unparalleled elegance, complexity and robustness. Intense and deep, slightly spicy but soft and with a long finish, it expresses all the complexity of a cognac with a long aging process.
