Maison Hennessy has been creating one of the finest cognacs since 1765. With the James Hennessy blend, the Tasting Committee today pays tribute to one of its historic figureheads: a pioneering entrepreneur and accomplished traveller, who always had an innate understanding of the need to explore new horizons. This is an exceptional cognac that displays beautiful shades of amber with highlights of bronze, and offers layers of smooth, toasty aromas. Silky, yet well structured, this drink expands across the palate with notes reminiscent of blood peach and roasted almonds, while giving way to an outstanding finish. To be enjoyed neat or on ice.
