The Hennessy Maison’s Master Blender, presents the Hennessy 250 Collector Blend

[pullquote]“To mark milestone celebrations, Hennessy has always carefully created a special cognac to illustrate a sense of continuity. Today, the Maison celebrates 250 years of savoir-faire and excellence by creating a unique anniversary blend.” [/pullquote]

Since 2010, Yann Fillioux, together with his Comité de Dégustation (Tasting Committee), has been selecting eaux de vie from amongst the ones he has carefully chosen and matured throughout his 50-year presence in the Maison. In order to prepare the Hennessy 250 Collector Blend, these eaux-de-vie were aged in 250 handmade, especially commissioned barrels of Limousin oak containing 250 litres each. Prior to that, they were aged in barrels for at least ten years under optimum conditions: temperate and oceanic, the epitome of controlled balance, of subtlety and “elegance”, to borrow one of Fillioux’s favourite terms.

Commemorating their 250th anniversary, The Hennessy 250 Collector Blend pays full tribute to two-and-a-half centuries of excellence, international expansion, and visionary passion. The carafe was designed by Stephanie Balini, and is emblematic of Hennessy’s modern vision and vast legacy.

A Singular Ageing Method Makes Distinct Cognac

This distinctive cognac is the product of an exceptional blending and aging process, born of the creative inspiration of Hennessy Master Blender Yann Fillioux. It is an expertly assembled blend of eaux-de-vie aged 15-35 years, selected to achieve a harmony between power, vivacity, and elegance. The blend completed its aging in ideal conditions: resting in 250 specially crafted barrels of 250 liters each, carefully stored at ground level near the banks of the river Charente.

Tasting Notes

This cognac is rich and expressive on the nose, develops into a complex blend of aromatic tones ranging from vegetal to spicy: bitter orange and freshly grated nutmeg, liquorice, dried peppermint leaf and delicate spices, in particular saffron. Strong on the palate, this cognac also possesses great elegance, with wonderful persistence on the finish, a delightful nuance of spicy complexity. www.hennessy.com
