Hennessy VSOP Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie's that balance strength and smoothness. This inviting expression of a very balanced French cognac, has its origins in a requirement coming from the UK. It was a future King George IV who placed the first order for a 'Very Superior Old Pale' cognac. The first shipment arrived in 1818. Mahogany in colour with glints of light tones. It has aromas of fresh fruit, that combines with a sense of suppleness. This leads to the harmony found in this cognac. A full body palate with flavours of fruits, vanilla, spices and mild tobacco.
