Hennessy Vs Cognac 1L
Hennessy VS Cognac 1L is one of the big names in Cognac and their V.S (Very Special) bottling is one of the most popular. As the youngest of the portfolio, Hennessy V.S is, of course, the least expensive and price-wise, it remains in line with (if not less than) comparable Cognacs.
Overall, this is a decent Cognac that is worthy of mixing into any brandy cocktail you choose. At around $30 a bottle, this is a reliable Cognac that is always there when you need it. It does not disappoint and is a fantastic base for both new and old drink recipes.
V.S. is a bold yet harmonious blend reminiscent of robust spice and fruit flavors, punctuated by fruity notes and delicate vanilla nuances. Smooth and complex, Hennessy V.S. is the symbol of a bold cognac appreciated for its elegant, vigorous, fine and lively notes.
Benchmark VS from one of Cognac’s ‘Big Four’ producers. Popular the world over for its elegant style and consistent high quality. A blend of around forty different eaux-de-vie. The Cognac grading system was actually created by Maurice Hennessy in 1865. This VS (very special) cognac is the quintessential Cognac.
Tasting Notes :
Hennessy VS Cognac 1L is very bold and opens with sweet wood and nutty fragrances to remind you that it is in the room. The palate is warm and filled with grape, citrus, and apple notes, along with a considerable amount of wood, which is not overpowering but eminently pleasing.
