Proof66 Notes

Hennessy XO (or Extra Old) is the ultra-premium expression from Hennessy containing a blend of cognac that is no younger than 5.5 years but will average between 15 and 20 years from a combination of over 100 different eau-de-vies (the clear spirit prior to aging). The label XO was actually a creation of JAS Hennessy when Maurice Hennessy, great grandson of Richard Hennessy.

Hennessy Cognacs are some of the most famous brandies in the world and (bafflingly) popular in the hip-hop world. From the 1765 founding by Richard Hennessy (of Ireland), it has reached a point where it sold over 35 million bottles in 2001.

better XO cognacs out there but for the same price, there are better quality XO cognacs out there. as i'm not easily swayed by marketing ploys, i have not been content of Hennessy XO of recent compared to their old blends. the XO's of these days kind of balances between their old XO and VSOP.... did they run short of quality aged liquids that they began blending in more younger liquids to make the characteristics becoming more like their VSOP? if you are more of quality, get more of their VSOP for the same money. that's what i'd do.
