"The original X.O since 1870, meaning Extra Old. Created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends. Selected from 4 premier growing areas. Its intense and deep amber color is a sign of its strength. Its flavors of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its power and roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm, fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’s blending and its long ageing process."
