Hennessy Black Cognac 750ml
Hennessy is the largest cognac house in the world. Founded by Irish immigrant Richard Hennessy, the House of Hennessy commands approximately 40% of the world cognac market. HENNESSY BLACK COGNAC produces a full range of quality products from its V.S. to Paradise cognacs.
Hennessy is the clear cognac market leader in the category not because of lower prices, but rather due to quality, marketing and name recognition. Indeed, Hennessy’s V.S., V.S.O.P Privilege and XO Cognacs are priced at the high end of the range of most cognac houses‘ Cognac offerings.
Debuting in 2009, Hennessy Black is exclusively available in the United States, setting itself apart as a distinctively smooth cognac perfect for cocktails. Its texture and higher ABV (43%) make it the cognac of choice for many mixologists.
Hennessy is the highly versatile, decidedly different new Cognac from the world’s leading Cognac house. A delightful celebration of contrasts, intense yet surprisingly delicate and smooth. Hennessy enchants with distinct aromas of fresh fruit and white flowers. The cognac’s refined elegance conceals an unexpected smoothness. Elegant, floral, and distinctively refined.
Golden amber color.
The nose is light with a hint of the white Ugni Blanc grapes used to make the eau de vie, which also comes through in the taste. This is clearly a grape-based spirit, with bright white wine notes coming through and just a hint of oak.
Smooth and intense with sweet honey and a touch of citrus, complex roundness.
Evolves into a more masculine, woody taste.
Hennessy suggests that Black can be drunk neat. Other than out of curiosity, there is no reason to choose Hennessy Black as a sipping cognac. Hennessy Black is as Hennessy intends a cognac for mixing. Hennessy Black was created to be a versatile cocktail mixer, for use with mixers not normally associated with cognacs, like Coca-cola, or in cocktails unique to Hennessy Black.
