In 2016, Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège celebrates its mastery through the unique – and multi-layered – vision of the Milan based art and design duo Carnovsky who pioneered the RGB process by creating, enhancing and replicating historical images using the digital world’s three primary colours: red, green and blue. Although the three coloured-layers of Carnovksy's unique design coexist harmoniously, when viewed through a coloured filter each of them reveals a facet of V.S.O.P Privilège: Red is Energy, Green is Nature and Blue is Dream.
The hollow bouquet emits only fey scents of vines and green vegetation. The palate entry is very sweet, nearly syrupy; the midpalate is the best phase as rounded flavors of dark toffee, nougat, and maple work nicely together. Finishes sweet, sap-like, and acceptably woody.
The Hennessy cognac distillery was founded by Richard Hennessy, an Irish officer serving in the army of Louis XV.The Prince of Wales, later King George IV of Great Britain, was a great connoisseur of cognac. He asked Hennessy to create a "very superior old pale cognac." Since then the initials V.S.O.P - Very Superior Old Pale - have been used as a benchmark for the entire industry. Gerald de Geoffre de Chabrignac, Richard Hennessy's nephew, created the now distinctive X.O flacon design.nspired by the cognac Hennessy created for Czar Alexander I in 1818, Master Blender Yann Fillioux created Paradis Imperial. This cognac features a large proportion of eaux de vie from the Maison's 19th century reserve, creating a cognac of exceptional elegance, finesse and stature.
