HENNESSY, MASTER BLENDER'S SELECTION NO. 4

 

COGNAC, FRANCE

 

 

When it comes to luxurious and ultra-rare Cognac, few maisons come close to Hennessy. While their premium labels like Paradis or Richard boast price tags in the quadruple digits (even X.O. nears $200), the Master Blender’s Selection releases offer a taste of Hennessy precision and craft at a fraction of the price. What’s more, these collector favorites are limited releases crafted in a single batch that can never be recreated—adding all the more to their intrigue and the anticipation they command. Master Blender’s Selection No. 4 has recently been released; the blend was meticulously selected by Hennessy’s 8th Generation Master Blender, Renaud Filloux de Gironde, who took the reins from his uncle Yann Filloux a few years back. This is a stunning and deeply aromatic, rich Cognac, slightly higher proof at 43% ABV, that boasts aromas of white flowers, sweet citrus, and warming spice. Aged in a combination of new and used French red oak, the spirit captures the oak influence while maintaining the elegance and finesse of the eaux-de-vie itself. For one week, you can collect this never-to-be-replicated Cognac for sub-$90! This release is simply a must-have for all spirit enthusiasts. 

 

The pedigreed Hennessy maison is home to one of the largest collections of eaux-de-vie, or "water of life" (unaged/aging spirit) in the world, with more than 380,000 French oak barrels stored in 65 cellars across the Cognac region in France. And when it comes to collectible Cognac, the importance of blending and selection cannot be overstated. In crafting Master Blender’s Selection No. 4, the second iteration he has created, Filloux de Gironde was inspired by a personal memory of a winter spent mountainside, “reconnecting with nature and kindling the warmth of time shared with loved ones” (Hennessy). With a history spanning centuries, Hennessy has perfected their craft but has long lived their mantra “never stop, never settle.” While the Hennessy name is one of the most recognized spirit names in the world, the maison has never lost their dedication to the purity of their Cognacs. Master Blender’s Selection No. 4 is a resounding testament to their craft—secure your order while you can!
