Cognac, FRANCE
$79. 99
$959.88 Dozen
ABV: 40%

In 1865, inspired by the decorative handle of his office window, Maurice Hennessy created the star symbol that he would use to classify his cognacs. Thus was born the Three Star Cognac, better known today as V.S. Hennesey V.S. is a blend of more than 40 eaux de vie from the four premier growing areas of the cognac region. Hennessy V.S has traditionally been enjoyed after a meal, but it is also very popular mixed with ice and soda water, tonic, orange juice or ginger ale, as a long drink.

Tasting note: Brassy gold with gold hue. Moderately aromatic nose yields subtle aromas of dried fruits, old wood and pepper. An off dry, medium to full bodied palate offers flavours of boiled confectionary and dried fruits with a peppery kick, before a drying tannic finish sets in. Reasonable aftertaste of pepper and sweet leather with a touch of caramel and tumeric. Entry level cognac. 40% alc./vol.

Other reviews... Clear copper hue. Brown spice and sweet, woody nose. A quick, supple entry leads to a off-dry, light body with sweetish orange peel, licorice and pepper notes. Finishes quickly with a muted cinnamon and allspice fade. A good, classically flavored VS Cognac.
