The first “Extra Old” Cognac ever made and established the Extra Old Category. Originally created in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for the personal enjoyment of his friends and family. This year, Hennessy partners with industrial designer, Marc Newson, to provide a new take on the timeless X.O bottle. The final design is contemporary and reveals a series of curved lines that catch the light, revealing the intense and deep amber shades of the blend. The liquid is smooth with a hint of cocoa and a warm fruity finish expressing the complexity of the Cognac’s blending and its long ageing process.
