This is Don Henny writing on Cognac-Expert.com
Hi guys, they call me Don Henny because I love Hennessy. Sophie & Max offered me to write something about my Hennessy collection, and here I come.
This cognac came in green glass. Produced until the 1980’s in formats 3cl-70/75cl-1L & 1,5L
Age 6-15yrs old. Sometimes label shows Grande Fine Champagne underneath VSOP Réserve, but it’s the same product.
Today’s value of this bottle is around 80-120euro for 70cl. They are still easy to find on the web.
Of course You can still drink this Cognac. I think this is a very nice one.. especially the smell, It has a very nice aroma on the nose.
The only problem is the Cork, this was sear as of the age. But with a colander was quickly resolved this problem.
And I was ready to taste this one.
Flavour: Very smooth aroma…Lightly wood, fruit, flower, leather,nuts
Taste: Spices, some Pepper, wood/fruit
Short nice sharp & solid cognac when you drink it, not a very long aftertaste.
As I give like 3 – 4 times a year a Don Henny Tasting Night, we have opened this one at Don Henny’s PT3. Everyone was really surprised & looking out to open this bottle as it dates from the 1970’s. We stumbeled imidiatly on a small problem the corck dried out, but we fixed this easly by putting it in a decanter.
My first impression was…. that it really went into the direction of the Napoleon Bras d’Or, especially the smell.
But once you drink from it, it’s a very different cognac.
