Product Details“Distinctively smooth,” reads the sleek, black bottle, and surely no truer words were written about Hennessy’s contemporary amber-hued cognac – a lighter and fresher expression of the spirit. Delicately floral yet with a multifaceted intensity thanks to its youth and time spent in old French oak barrels, the versatile Hennessy Black is fun and sophisticated, and perfect for mixing.

Blend and Origin
Hennessy Black is a blend of 45 different eaux-de-vie selected for their elegant floral characteristics that are aged for at least two years in French oak barrels. The barrels themselves are older, imparting a gentler wood influence on the cognac. Subtler flavors are encouraged to develop, and the spirit is a lighter hue than a cognac aged in new oak.
