HENNESSY MASTER BLENDER’S SELECTION N°4

HENNESSY MASTER BLENDER’S SELECTION N°4

Master Blender Selection n4

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.
The Master Blender’s Selection N°4 is a personal blend and a distinctive expression of the Hennessy craft. Fresh with a supple elegance, this single-batch was hand-selected by Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, fruit of his creativity.

TASTING

COLOR

The blend is characterized by a light amber color with a slightly tarnished golden robe.

NOSE

The nose of the blend delivers an aromatic liveliness with notes of fresh apricot, almost-candied orange peel and hints of fruity spices. This single-batch is not overly woodsy, light and warm.

PALATE

On the palate, there is a sense of “crispiness”, the blend seems to crunch under the tongue. Touches of spices make a subtle appearance, adding warmth, a direct result of aging the eaux-de-vie in younger red oak barrels. The blend can be described as mastered simplicity with a modern touch of sophistication.

DESIGN

DID YOU KNOW

THE INSPIRATION

8th generation Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde shared his inspiration :"I have a thermal shock in mind: the one of a walk ramble, after having walked outside in the cold wrapped
up in thick coat, and get back to the comfort and the heat of a fireplace.
The passage of a moment into the Nature, alone facing the elements, to a protected cocoon and a kind of
intimacy in its own environment."

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
