Hennessy VS Bottling Note

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 Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Woody and nutty, with a little sweetness. Develops rounded floral notes, with elements of berries, vanilla spice and plenty of oak later on.

Hennessy VS Reviews

A+, very pleased.

Had a toast with it to LtCol Richard Cole, last remaining Doolittle Raider, on his 103rd B-Day celebration. I must say it was very nice, going to place some in my liquor cabinet.

Just superb

Revered...and with good reason. Like liquid silk, it's as smooth as James Bond in a velvet suit. Worth every penny.

Very interesting VS

The first impression is quite subtle with the aroma of cherry jam, oak, white grapes, sherry and very dominant menthol. Some rede currants in the background, too, and along the way a little note of plums.
The palate changes quickly: at first it's white wine, then cherry jam, menthol, fresh strawberries and a bit of red currants, then turns to sherry with plums in the background, leaves with a dry sherry-sweet note and an aftertaste of menthol, cherries, oak and dry white wine.
Finish is long lasting that I found to be quite nice for a VS.

General opinion: very easy to sip, not too complex, fresh and has a lot of aroma. Nice for a mixer, would picture myself drinking Sazerac with this. Lacks some oaky aromas, like young cognac tends to do, and may become repetitive after a while, meaning that only one glass will be okay for a good experience. Needs time to show it's true potential. But anyways, nice cognac in all, a very good way to begin a journey in the world of spirits.

Conclusion: 87/100, delightful, light and generally a nice purchase. Practical for a beginner or someone, who wants a classic drink.

Standard

if you want a cheap cognac you might aswell buy this one, if you've got an extra tenner to spare then get something else

Quite Rich on the palate but is still behind Martell. however the finish is very long.

Give it a try!

This was the first alcoholic drink I ever bought for myself when I turned 18.

Do I think I made a good choice? Absolutely!
All I can say is that it has a sweetness and warmth with subtle spicy notes, that, for some reason, makes me think of Christmas whenever I take a sip.

Drink this neat on a cold day and you'll feel bliss engulf your soul :)

The Best Brandy

The smoothness and boldness of Henessy made it a unanimous choice to be TREF-VAM's official drink for its reunions.

Excellent cognac

The taste is smooth, rich and leaves a bit of nutty note which I love. My mother is a cognac lover, and she adores it - excellent present.

Super smooth

The smoothest, richest and deepest tasting cognac, with a subtle hint of fruit and wood. Good value at this price.

Excellent Buy

What can I say? I am by no means a cognac expert. However, when it comes to Hennessy, I know I'm getting a very good product.It has a strong and long lasting taste when drunk straight. It can also be mixed into a various amount of cocktails making it a very versatile drink. Excellent Buy!!
