Proof66 Notes

Hine House produces several different varieties of cognac. It was founded in the 1817 by English immigrant Thomas Hine, whose father sent him to France to learn the art of brandy. They are produced in the "ancient cellars" of the house on the banks of the Charente river. They own 297 acres in the Grande Champagne region, to which 173 is given over to vines and the rest ot nature. They age their cognacs first for between 6 and 9 months in new oak that has been seasoned in teh open air to release their tanins prior to aging in older barrels.

H by Hine is considered to be their introductory cognac. They regad it as fruity and floral and is a blend of 20 cognacs each aged for at least 4 years (earning it a VSOP or Very Special/Superior Old Pale designation). They recommend it equally for sipping and cocktails.

The 2008 Beverage Testing Institute review claimed H by Hine had "Excellent structure and balance, in a soft feminine style."
