Specialty of Privilege VSOP
If you are brandy lover you would love to know that Hennessy Privilege VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) is a blend of as many as 60 different eau de vie (fruit brandies), which gives it a rich and highly sophisticated taste that lingers on the palate.
Perfectly aged drink
Hennessy VSOP achieves its prominent deep and rich golden amber colour and oak notes on the nose and palate after a perfect aging of up to 15 years in French Oak.
Balanced and mature
Though Hennessy VSOP is considered a little complex, with its spice and grapes notes, its flavours are quite balanced and mature, with a mix of dark toffee, nougat and maple in the body.
