Privilege is inspired by a cognac created in 1817 in response to a request from the future King of England, George IV, calling for a Very Superior Old Pale cognac. Today Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege Cognac has established itself as the worlds favorite V.S.O.P Cognac, and is recognized for its harmonious and well-structured blend. Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege easily matches every tasting occasion; whether enjoyed on the rocks, as a long drink or in a more creative mix. Light amber with a mild and tender texture. On the nose, the first fragrances perceived are soft spices such as vanilla, clove and cinnamon. Delicate toasted notes follow, arising from the maturation in oak barrels. 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.
