Discover Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection No.5:

Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection No.5 is a unique cognac expression crafted as a single batch, designed to be a one-of-a-kind limited edition that stands out in the prestigious lineage of Hennessy offerings. This particular blend is the brainchild of the Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, who meticulously hand-selected eaux-de-vie with distinctive character and potential. The result is an eloquent testament to the art of blending, showcasing an aromatic richness with subtle undertones of toasted hazelnuts and smooth vanilla nuances. Its profile is further distinguished by its maturation process; aged in young oak barrels before being transferred to older ones, this method imparts a delicate balance between robust woodiness and refined floral notes.

The allure of Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection No.5 lies not only in its complex flavor profile but also in its exclusivity and craftsmanship. Each bottle encapsulates the innovative spirit of Hennessy while adhering to the time-honored traditions that have defined the brand for centuries. On the palate, it reveals a harmonious symphony of flavors where each sip delivers velvety textures intertwined with hints of spice and fruit-driven vivacity, culminating in a long-lasting finish that resonates with elegance and depth. This cognac does not merely invite tasting; it demands contemplation, rewarding connoisseurs with an immersive sensory experience that epitomizes the pinnacle of fine spirits craftsmanship.

Hennessy is a renowned name hailing from the lush regions of Cognac, France. This esteemed producer has carved out a reputation for crafting some of the world’s most exquisite cognacs, a type of brandy that must meet strict production criteria to bear the Cognac name. The essence of Hennessy’s fame lies in its meticulous distillation process and the aging of their spirits in wooden barrels, which imparts complex flavors and a smooth finish that connoisseurs across the globe have come to cherish.

Cognac Varieties

Cognac is a kind of brandy named after the town of Cognac in the French province of Charente-Maritime. Wine from the neighboring wine-growing area, Charente and Maritime, is used to make this liqueur.

Cognac production is governed by the French appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designation, with certain production techniques and naming criteria that must be followed in order to maintain AOC status. Ugni blanc, often known as Saint-Émilion in the region, is the most commonly planted of the grapes on the list. Two distillations in copper pot stills are required, as is an aging period of at least two years in French oak barrels from the Limousin or Tronçais regions of France. While cognac develops in the same manner as whiskies and wines do in barrels, the majority of cognacs spend much more time "on the wood" than the statutory minimum amount of time.

Cognac has often humorously been described as "nearly undrinkable" because of the dryness, acidity, and thinness of the white wine used in the production of cognac. Despite this, the wine is ideal for distillation and maturing. A limited number of grape varietals are permitted to be used in its production. For a wine to be deemed a genuine cru, it must contain at least 90 percent Ugni blanc as its primary grape. It is necessary to ferment for 2–3 weeks after the grapes have been crushed, during which time the region's natural, wild yeasts transform the sugar into alcohol; neither sugar nor sulfur may be added. The resultant wine has about 7 to 8 percent alcohol at this stage.

Once the distilling process is complete, it is aged in Limousin oak barrels for a minimum of two years before it may be sold to the general population. It is usually placed in barrels at an alcohol by volume level of about 70%. As the cognac interacts with the wood barrel and the surrounding air, it evaporates at a rate of about 3 percent per year, losing both alcohol and water over a period of time. This occurrence is referred to as "la portion des anges," which translates as "the angels' share" in the local language. When a cognac is aged for more than 10 years in an oak barrel, the alcohol level falls to 40 percent by volume. Once moved to huge glass bottles called bonbonnes, the cognac is kept for future blending purposes. Because oak barrels lose their ability to provide flavor after four or five decades, so aging them for extended periods of time may not be helpful.
