How is Hennessy Paradis Impérial made ?
Hennessy Paradis Impérial encapsulates the distinctive art and relentless quest for finesse of Hennessy Master Blenders.
Selection is not only a science.
It is an art.
The eaux-de-vie that lie in oak barrels and dame-jeannes of the Founder's Cellar are the essence of Hennessy’s greatest cognacs. These rare cognacs would not exist at all, were it not for the unique, invaluable savoir-faire of Hennessy's Master Blender.
For Hennessy Paradis Impérial, the Master Blender exclusively selects within this collection the eaux-de-vie of the most extreme finesse. In an entire harvest, only ten out of ten thousand eaux-de-vie on average are deemed worthy of one day entering this blend.
Along the years, with precise tasting technique and a unique lexicon of sensorial memories inherited from his ancestors, the Master Blender will detect the promise of finesse and patiently guide the eaux-de vie to their very tipping point of elegance : too early they’re not ready, too late, they start to decline.
This is the Master Blender quest. More than a science. His art. And the reason why Hennessy Paradis Impérial, cognac of absolute subtlety and delicacy, represents the apex of this art.
Hennessy Paradis Impérial encapsulates the distinctive art and relentless quest for the finest eaux-de-vie throughout seven generations of Master Blenders from the Fillioux family.
To fully appreciate the taste of Hennessy Paradis Impérial, you will need three of your senses.
The value of Hennessy Paradis Impérial reflects the absolute rarity of the eaux-de-vie it contains.
Hennessy Paradis Impérial is best enjoyed at room temperature in a tall, tulip-shaped crystal glass.
A sealed decanter of Hennessy Paradis Impérial can preserve its rare qualities, unchanged, almost indefinitely.
Never has a blend of eaux-de-vies of this age exhibited such a light golden color, such soft celadon reflections. Those nuances could only be obtained and preserved with a maturation in very old casks containing low levels of tannins.
The vibrancy of Hennessy Paradis Impérial hue foretells the freshness of its bouquet. Its floral notes evoke a pure, crisp spring day. With every sip, essences of orange flower and jasmine blend in a subtle, swirling foundation of smoke and subtle spices.
To the last drop, flavors combined with an ethereal grace last paradoxically throughout the palate. Uncommon emotions indeed.
