Blend and Origin
Hennessy has blended 100 of its oldest eaux-de-vie – aged in old barrels for up to 200 years – with younger examples to create this incomparable cognac. Once blended, it gains complexity and power through five years in younger casks, with the wood emphasizing the structure and character of the eaux-de-vie. This also gives Richard Hennessy its darker color.
