King George IV appointed Messrs Hennessy to supply him with a very superior, old and pale Cognac. By the end of the 19th century, V.S.O.P as it had become known, was firmly established with a reputation for unparalleled exellence and consistency amongst the nobility of Great Britain. Still assembled from a canon of over sixty Eaux-de-vie aged up to fifteen years, VSOP is sourced from the four leading Cognac vineyards, to be matured in a selection of old, well seasoned oak barrels, of which the tannins have been purposefully extracted.
A delicate blend of wood notes and spice, punctuated by the scents of cinnamon and clove. Discreet, subtle and harmonious, VSOP is characterised by a fragrance of honey and suggestion of liquorice. An elegant Cognac characterized by outstanding balance, softness and harmony followed by an exemplary finish exhibiting roundness and sophistication.
