Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Hennessy XO to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Hennessy XO Bottling Note

The term XO was coined for this very Cognac by Maurice Hennessy in the 19th century, and it was first bottled in 1870 for family and friends. This blend is composed of over 100 eaux-de-vie from the Grande and Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois regions. A rich, spicy, complex and truly historical Cognac, destined to be had alongside a cigar.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A rich, fruity palate with prunes, Corinth raisins and sticky toffee pudding.

Palate: Dark chocolate and over-ripe plums. A little sultana character, cocoa butter and spice.

Finish: Spicy, vanilla-led finish with all kinds of dark fruits.

Hennessy XO Reviews

My go to for almost any occasion

This is smooth, rich and beautiful. It has the feel of armagnac in the way it has the classic Hennessy kick at the end.

This in a hip flask on the beating line is superb. Or just for when sitting and relaxing in the countryside. Ideally an outside drink as the fresh air opens your airways and releases more of the complexity of the drink.

Renowned as the best xo. The depth, complexity and smoothness is on another level. Keep coming back to this one over Remy, Martel etc. Highly recommend.

The best

Average at best

Over hyped. Over priced. Better off going independent brands like De Luze, Prunier or Godet. Far better value.

Amazing aroma

Amazing aroma , experienced it for the first time while on Holiday in the Far East!

Not a great experience

Disappointed. Not as complexed as I remember. Very expensive these days for what it is.

Nothing special at all, and no way does it taste 4 times better than Hennessy VSOP (just saying that as it is 4 times more costly). Prefer Courvoisier XO by a long chalk.

Still, cognac is the boy though. And i am just one human, so my opinion alone is just that and potentially meaningless to another.

Better than most

Whom ever compared this to the dom perignon of cognacs obviously has no idea what he is on about. I have tried the other cognacs he has mentioned and are like paint/throat stripper in comparrison. Do not be put off by ignorance. This is like velvet and far more complex than most on the market.

Color:deep amber,
Nose:honey, raisiny, appricots, dates
Taste: sweet, honey, rose water, appricot and orange on back side.
Finish: medium dry, silky rich

Dom Perignon of Cognacs, that was not a compliment...

Does not compare well to B. de Gensac VSOP or Martell of the same age or even Remy, if you are into run of the mill Cognacs. The nose is woody with some recessed sweetness , but overall a very weak nose for any Cognac. Taste is exactly the same as a nose, woody with some fruit. No complexity no power just a below average Cognac that has been marketed very well indeed. My comparison to DP is due to the same effect DP brand has on average consumer. If it is (.....insert the commercial brand....) it must be drink of rich and famous= good. Guess again. Hennessy XO is a total let down, especially at the retail price. Try D. Bouju, Audry, Thorin or Tesseron instead.

I have tried this bottle and I would like to say AMAZING I wish I just had that kind of money to buy one for myself.

very strong powerful aroma and also bold in taste, enjoyable

Superbly Smooth

Hennessy XO is perfect for savouring on a cold winter's night in front of a wood fire. It is deliciously smooth and warming without the sharp hit at the back of the throat that you get with some cheaper Cognac's.

perfect for desserts

i am dry alcoholic. so i usually don't drink.
but this one i use when baking and cooking for friends.

it is just great! The taste is complex and very soft. its better than any spice.

wonderful mixer

i love this with coke zero. the coke isn't as sweet as normal full fat so doesn't over power the drink......... calm down i'm not that heathen. one of my favoured tipples when notin the mood for a single malt.

Hi there! As it's a blend, it doesn't have a specific year as such, but what we can tell you is that it's a least 6 years old. --The Chaps at Master of Malt

rich and Tasty

Just took it for the first time. Its mellow, with a rich taste. Soft on the palate. I'd take it anytime.

Simply delicious

I first sampled this elixir some 30 years ago on a holiday trip to the Bordeaux region which coincided with my 21st.
We enjoyed the Peter Ustinov narrated documentary on the history and a trip to the storage facilities where the heady scent filled your brain with the delight to come of the tasting!

I have since educated many friends to this magnificent brand.

May have to take a bottle with me to the afterlife!

X.O. Love

I got a bottle of Hennessy X.O. Couple years ago for a friends birthday. When we opened it, it was amazing! It's warm and inviting, the taste is was everything that was promised and for some reason it reminds me of Christmas. I can't wait to get my own bottle and I have become a huge fan of the Hennessy brand.
