“Don Henny’s” Unbelievable 160-bottle Hennessy Cognac Collection

We were contacted some days ago by Olivier, who has a great nickname and who is a passionate collector of Hennessy bottles; special editions and bottles of some quite rare limited editions, standard bottles, old bottles… well, everything.

Read all Don Henny articles

We thought this would be something to share:

My name is Olivier, I’m 32 years old. My friends call me ‘Don Henny’ because of my big passion for Hennessy.

Hennessy collection

This is a list of what I’ve tasted:

VS, Fine, VSOP “Privilge& Fine Champagne& Grande Reserve”, XO & XO Grande Champagne, Napoleon “Bras d’Or”, Paradis, Privé, Kenzo, Black, Hennessy White (Pure White), Classique, Private Reserve 1873, Le Peu, Izambard, Camp Romain, Bras d’Or, Napoleon Tome Book Red.

Hennessy Limited edition

This all started well 15 years back, when I drank cognac for the first time. This was Hennessy VS, which my friends & I like to call the Hammer.

So i discoverd Hennessy & plesure to drink it. Even until today…I still discover new things they created.

I started collecting slowley different kinds of bottles and bar atributes 8 years ago… Now I’ve got around 160 bottles of Hennessy, including all my doubles.

‘Doubles’: So I can taste one and leave one closed for the collectible value.

I also collect most of the other items they have from Hennessy, like glass, toy cars ,t’shirts, mirrors & everything else.

Hennessy White collection

So through all these years I have now also tasted many different products of Hennessy.

So that’s it! Nice one, right?

    Dear Olivier,

    we offer a Hennessy vintage 1830 cognac online – the only one in the world. Even if you might not buy it, it will surely be interesting for Hennessy collectors to know that such a bottle exists. Until now, the oldest vintage was a half bottle 1853 which had been opened in 2012 in a restaurant in London – the price was 19.000 British Pound – about 23.000 Euro.

    Best wishes

    Hi Robert,

    Please send some pictures, looks very interesting. Or have a look at my website.
    I don’t think I will be able to buy it,,,

  17. Saul March 2, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    Hi Robert,

    Is it possible to have pictures of the Hennessy 1830 Vintage bottle you have, and an indication of pricing ideally too? I am very interested in this bottle.
    Many thanks

    Hi I’m looking to but a bottle of P.R.

  21. Don Henny April 10, 2014 at 9:00 am

    I have none for sale srry. Try auction sites or liquor online stores. Price can be as high as 500euro as far as I have seen, but that’s way overpriced. As you know when released in 2001 store price was 180euro only. but they have become more rare to find now

  22. Hal April 21, 2014 at 8:06 pm

    I have an old 50ML (I believe) unopened bottle of Hennessy Cognac. My 83 year old Mom got it when she was young and just gave it to me. I will try to find out approximately what year she acquired it. Would you be able to help me find it’s value? I can send picture if you like.
