X.O is blended from more than 100 eaux de vie specially selected from the four premier growing areas. Some of the eaux de vie used in the blend have been aging in the Hennessy warehouses since the early part of this century. Rich, full-bodied and complex, X.O combines the spicy aromas of oak and leather with the sweeter essences of flowers and ripe fruit. Well-balanced, the initial flourish is dominated by the powerful suggestion of pepper and rancio, which testify to the long years it has spent being aged. Complex and long-lasting. Traditionally X.O has been enjoyed following a fine meal, however more and more people are discovering the added pleasures of X.O On the Rocks. Simply add one or two ice cubes and a splash of water to release the aromas of the blend.
The product of a gradual blend of over 60 eaux de vie taken from the four leading vineyards in the Cognac region, V.S.O.P is slowly matured in old barrels from which most of the tannin has been extracted. A delicate blend of wood notes and spices, punctuated by the scent of cloves and cinnamon. Discreet, subtle and harmonious, it is characterized by the fragrance of honey and a suggestion of licorice. The favorite mixers are mineral water (still or sparkling), soda water, ginger ale and tonic water.
Fine golden-yellow. Aromas of dried fruit, nut, and lime blossom. Robust and well-balanced. Fresh and intense, with an attractive color, bouquet, and flavor.

Martell VSSD focuses on single distilleries, emphasizing the global trend for artisanal production & fair trade. It's the youngest Cognac to be launched by the house, aged for only two years. It has fruity notes of plum, apricot, and lemon confit.
A perfect harmony of luscious fruit aromas and refined wood overtones. A warm copper colour with glints of gold, giving it a uniquely luminous appearance. When a barrel is called Red, a reference to the reddish color of aged wood, it has aged before other eaux-de-vie during at least 2 years up to 8 years, reaching the perfect stage of maturation for both the wood and the spirit. For Martell VSOP aged in Red Barrels, our cellar master selected only these very rare red fine grained oak barrels to age this cognac, highlighting Martell specific ageing style.
COURVOISIER® VS is aged longer to give a more distinctive character and a more rounded taste. The aroma is rich, fresh and oaky balanced with the vigour of a young cognac. The finish is short but very intense and as powerful as the aroma.
Smooth from its first notes, intense throughout tasting, it is an alluring and multifaceted Cognac with both delicate floral aromas and complex roundness on the palate.
Created with a unique blend of very old cognacs resulting in a supremely rich product. With its harmonious yet complex character, COURVOISIER® XO Imperial is a perfect balance of intense flavours. The Master Blenders tasting notes : COURVOISIER® XO Imperial is intensely aromatic and flavourful with a velvet texture and redolent bouquet with hints of orange, apricot and pear. It is very rich and complex with aromas of chocolate, vanilla and amber, and the old Borderies add exotic and bakery spices. The finish is very long and mellow with great depth and long development.
