Cognac Review: Hennessy XO - Extra Old
Cognac Review: Hennessy XO
Rum cake, raisins, cinnamon, spices and nutmeg.
Red licorice, cinnamon, cloves, milk chocolate and hazelnuts.
Long, black pepper accented red fruits like strawberries, currants adorn a backbone of Swiss milk chocolate.
Highly recommended cognac. I like this better than Remy Martin XO or Courvoisier XO.
PS. In this review I state the age of the eau de vie used in this cognac range from 10 to 70 years and the average age of eau de vie is 45 years. I am not sure that claim is legit anymore. Here is the website where I saw that claim: https://blog.cognac-expert.com/hennessy-xo-review-henny-tasting/comment-page-1/#comment-174558
I have left a comment asking them to advise.
This is the downfall of my unscripted and unedited reviews.
All the best,
