Celebrating 250 years of Hennessy with the Hennessy 250 Collector Blend
A cognac to remember
It’s an ardous process when perfecting the Hennessy 250 Collector Blend. Hennessy Master Blender and Taster, Yann Fillioux, with the help of a special tasting committee have painstakingly selected the right cognacs to go into this unique tipple, of which there are 250 handmade barrels to hold the 250 Collector Blend. The barrels, which are made of wide-grained Limousin oak, add a warmth of vanilla and toast, without overpowering the aromas of the cognac. Prior to the anniversary cognac being stored in these barrels, it has been aged for another ten years under optimum conditions in an ageing cellar near the banks of the Charente.
The flavours of the cognac are unforgettable – it is a bright, warm shade of amber, which comes from the slow ageing and the successive blending processes. While it is spicy and has herbal hints, other tasting notes include bitter orange, fresh nutmeg, liquorice, dried peppermint leaves as saffron. And like the reason of its creation, it’s perfect to be drunk during a special occasion.
The Hennessy 250 Collector Blend is only available via order directly through Moet Hennessy Diageo. For further enquiries, email [email protected] or call (603) 2053 8688.
