Created by Maurice Fillioux in 1979, the cognac Hennessy Paradis is known for its voluptuous and harmonious aroma.
It consists of eaux-de-vie, which are a reflection of the personality of such a delightful cognac: supple, light and round.
They are blended into an excellent cognac defined by its graceful, silky character, highlighting its finely nuanced and harmoniously balanced aromatic qualities.
Its superb display of coppery gold colours is an indication of the many years it has spent ageing in old casks.
The eaux-de-vie have been aged only in very old barrels, thus giving Hennessy Paradis its amber gold colour and hues.
On the nose Hennessy Paradis exudes floral notes of dried rose and honeysuckle, underpinned by intense notes of red fruits and spices.
A graceful, silky texture runs all the way through to a flavourful and deep, persistent finish. Honey, dried flowers, truffles and soft spices come to the fore in a melting pot of flavours. Delicate notes of cinnamon, cardamom and fruits give way to perfumes of dried rose petals and sweet briar jam.

THE INSPIRATION OF THE BLEND
Maurice Fillioux, 6th generation of Hennessy Master Blenders, liked to combine eaux-de-vie as an orchestra conductor guides instruments.
Since he was an art lover, Master Blender Maurice Fillioux created Hennessy Paradis as an ode to symphonic music and as a representation of its personality, combining smoothness and strength.
THE DECANTER SHAPE
The Paradis decanter is a variation of the iconic X.O decanter shape, with sensual wings expressing the roundness of the blend. An elegant and pure design revealing the blend with majesty, created by Italian artist Ferruccio Laviani.
