Black seems to be a VS Cognac from the house of Hennessy, and that means it’s quite a young one. It doesn’t say on the label whether it’s a VS, a VSOP or something else – but we assume it’s a VS, which is totally fine because it’s supposed to be a mixable cognac.

Hennessy Black is quite a modern Cognac, clearly targeted at Urban African-American consumers.

A Cognac Cocktail Recipe we like

What you need is:

  • a slice of lemon
  • 7Up or Sprite
  • ice cube
  • of course some cognac
  • some Badoit water (sparkling mineral water)
  • if possible, some Pineau

Now, first comes the Cognac, then one or two ice cubes. Now cut the lemon and squeeze some into the glass, add that lemonade.. and a slice of lemon. Done!

  1. Henny Pure White and Henny Black have the same color, the taste and, smell of flowery notes. Hummm, no it can’t be! It’s almost like saying the Ford Taurus and the Mercury Sable is the same car!

    That Hennessey Black and ginger ale, and slice of lime or lemon can’t beat it.
