For Lunar New Year 2021, Hennessy has teamed with Chinese world-renowned artist Liu Wei to create a limited edition of Hennessy X.O. The colorful palette chosen by Liu Wei is inspired by Spring, symbolizing the infinite choice of possibilities of growth. Just like the Hennessy Master Blender chooses specific eaux-de-vie for a blend, Liu Wei choses the color palette to express Spring’s cheerfulness.
In 1870, Maurice Hennessy created Hennessy X.O for his circle of friends and introduced a new style of cognac. Hennessy X.O is the Original, the emblematic icon of the Hennessy Maison.
Deep and powerful, the eaux-de-vie of this Hennessy X.O cognac are aged in young barrels and marked out by their power and energy, but also by their capacity to achieve a great roundness through time.
Rich, full-bodied and complex, XO combines the spicy aromas of oak and leather with the sweeter essences of flowers and ripe fruit. Well-balanced, the initial flourish is dominated by the powerful suggestion of pepper and rancio, which testify to the long years it has spent being aged.
