On the palate, the natural balance of strength and smoothness creates a harmonious blend in which maturity combines with vigour. The structure is softened by a suggestion of fresh grape character.
The highlight of tasting Hennessy V.S.O.P is the long-lasting finish, revealing the natural balance of the blend - testament to a superior cognac.
