Drinkers of fine cognac will want to take note: Hennessy has just released a limited edition expression called Hennessy 250 Collector Blend. This special bottling commemorates the brand’s 250th anniversary, and in keeping with the anniversary theme, Hennessy only produced 250 barrels of 250 liters each.
Hennessy 250 Collector Blend is an expertly assembled merger of 15 to 35 year old eaux-de-vie selected by Master Blender Yann Fillioux. The cognac was aged in barrels at ground level near the banks of the river Charente. The result is a rich and expressive spirit that achieves a harmonious balance between powerfully complex and elegant.
Each limited edition bottle comes enclosed in a specially designed gift box featuring a silver map on a copper metallic surface. It’s quite the conversation piece.
Color: Bright, warm amber.
Nose: Rich and expressive on the nose, developing complex aromatic tones: bitter orange and freshly grated nutmeg, liquorice, dried peppermint leaf and delicate spices.
Palate: An initial burst on the palate, rounding out to an elegant finish highlighted by a spicy complexity.
