Hennessy 250 Collector Blend

After China, Russia, and the US,  will bring their 250th anniversary world tour to South Africa this month.

But for cognac fans who won’t have the chance to attend the official and glitzy events, the luxury brand has released a rare collector’s blend to mark the occasion for $600.

To make the commemorative blend, master blenders used eaux-de-vie ranging in age from 15 to 35 years, and aged it for five years in specially crafted barrels, stored at ground level on near the banks of the river Charente in Cognac, France.

The result is a cognac that’s rich and expressive on the nose, with aromatic tones that range from bitter orange and freshly grated nutmeg, to licorice, dried peppermint leaf, and saffron, says Hennessy.

The finish is said to be nuanced with “spicy complexity.”
