HENNESSY MASTER BLENDER’S SELECTION N°3

HENNESSY MASTER BLENDER’S SELECTION N°3

MASTER BLENDER Cognac

At Maison Hennessy, it is said that cognac is not made, it is crafted. It is a precise blend of heritage, passion and transmission that are the essence of our craft.
Nothing captures this spirit of craftsmanship more than the Master Blender’s Selection. A unique series of limited edition releases, it is the result of our Master Blender’s freedom to elaborate a blend which, unlike other Hennessy cognacs, will not be replicated.

Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection N°3 marks a special milestone for the Maison Hennessy: this jovial, single-batch cognac is the first by 8th-generation Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde. Bottled at 43% to release praline and toasted hazelnut notes, it showcases an unctuous and supple mouthfeel.

TASTING

COLOR

The blend displays a light amber colour with a golden sheen.

NOSE

Certain aromatic tones can be perceived that are fresh and light, akin to those found in sweet pastries. In addition, there is a distinct flavour of toasted hazelnuts that highlights the blend’s unique character.

PALATE

The blend melts in the mouth yet maintains a wonderful persistence. On the palate, there is an unmistakeable presence of aromas such as soft textured pastries with a hint of praline. The blend is best described as elegant and subtle – an experience of smoothness from start to finish.

DESIGN

DID YOU KNOW

THE FIRST BLEND OF RENAUD FILLIOUX DE GIRONDE

When, in 2017, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde succeeded his uncle and became the eighth-generation of Hennessy Master Blenders, the privilege of crafting his first Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection was handed down to him.
A true craft cognac, Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection N°3 is unique and innovative by virtue of its hand-selected blending process. It is composed exclusively of high-quality eaux-de-vie with great potential that have been set aside specifically to be used at the Master Blender’s discretion.

AN OBJECT OF DESIRE

Inspired by the bottles used in apothecaries during the 19th century,  the decanter displays an impression of simplicity: pure lines, modern,  with a strong look.

AN INNOVATIVE PROCESS

Eaux-de-vie aged in young but not new, exclusively French red oak barrels, and bottled at 43%, to highlight the precision of the blending. At 43%, the blend really attains a certain elegance, a lightness that contributes to a sense of precision
