A blend of over 100 Cognacs, some of which date back to the early 1800s. The aroma requires time; when it does emerge, it blossoms into a multilayered bouquet laced with tea leaves, red pepper, dried fruit and old oak. Starts sweet and caramel-like at entry; sensational midpalate features rancio, raisins, vanilla extract, dried flowers and honey. Finish is semisweet. Hennessy's pinnacle achievement.
