Hennessy VS

NV A young Cognac form grapes from  all over the regions Bois ordinaire, Bon Bois, Borderies, Fins Bois, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne.   The bouquet is a bit rough, direct with hints of nuts, and on the palate touches of vanilla, oak, with a harsh undertone.  Usable in cocktails.  Tasted a number of times.  2.25/5

Hennessy VSOP Privilege

NV A standard cognac with a slightly terse bouquet with some clove notes and apples aromas, and flavours of vanilla, oak, hints of fruit and cinnamon;  it is a bit short and harsh.  For higher quality cocktails it is a suitable Cognac.  Tasted a number of times.  2.75/5

Hennessy XO

NV The bouquet has fresh touches with spices and hints of caramel, with tastes of candied cherries, dried plums and hints of caramel and cinnamon and hot chocolate.  It is not austere at all and more on the open and fruity side, with an excellent finish of fifty seconds.  A fine Cognac.  Tasted a number of times.  4/5

Hennessy Paradis

NV Very old course spirits, advertised as up to or over 100 years.  The bouquet discloses cinnamon, candied berries and a peppery undertone.  On the palate I get honeyed rosewood, baked pears, brioche, slightly spicy pink pepper that resolves quite quickly,  and hints of baked cheddar.  The finish is fifty seconds.  More a nuanced that a powerful Cognac.  Tasted a number of times.   4.25/5
