Hennessy VSOP is a blend of 60 different 'eaux-de-vie' aged up to 15 years and noted for its balance and sophistication. In 1817, the future King George IV of England asked Hennessy to supply him with a very superior, old and pale cognac. By the end of the 19th century, VSOP, as it had become known, had firmly established its reputation among the nobility. The product of a gradual blend of over 60 eaux de vie taken from the four leading vineyards in the Cognac region, VSOP is slowly matured in old barrels from which most of the tannin has been extracted.
On the nose, Hennessy has an intense fruity character and oaky notes. The palate is powerful with grilled almond flavour, complemented by lively notes of fresh grapes.
