On the nose, the first fragrances perceived are soft spices such as vanilla, clove and cinnamon. Then delicate toasted notes follow, arising from the maturation in oak barrels. On the palate, the natural balance of strength and smoothness creates a harmonious blend in which maturity combines with vigor. The structure is softened by a suggestion of fresh grape character. The highlight of tasting Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège is the long-lasting finish, revealing the natural balance of the blend – testament to a superior cognac.
