Debuting in 2009, Hennessy Black is a distinctively smooth cognac perfect for cocktails. Its texture and higher ABV (43%) make it the cognac of choice for many mixologists. These prefered qualities come from selecting young, fresh and vivid eaux-de-vies matured in old oak barrels in Cognac, France. Tasting Notes- Aroma: Bold jasmine notes combined with citrus and honey. Palate: Fresh cognac grapes with a touch of citrus.
