A unique limited edition gift set boasting an extra large, 1.5l bottle of Hennessy's flagship VS Cognac. A creation of over 40 different eaux-de-vie offers an enticing taste with a young and vibrant flair. Displaying this depth from first glance, the bottle’s display of the colors signify the layering of the tastes and aromas used by Hennessy's cellar master in the making of their blends. JonOne is a Dominican Republic born street artist who now commits his works of art to the canvas as well. Hennessy JonOne Deluxe Edition Gift Set is an extension of the latest Limited Edition by Cognac Hennessy in 2017. Both an excellent display and palate that offers a unique edge.

To create the eaux-de-vie for Hennessy’s signature VS, the finest Ugni Blanc grapes are selected, fermented and distilled twice in copper pot stills, known locally as alembic charentais. While some producers choose to distil their spirit with grape skins and other types of sediment, Hennessy removes this to create a lighter and more delicate Cognac. After distillation, only the best eaux-de-vie will be selected during tasting sessions held by a select committee of experts, with the final blend crafted by Hennessy’s eighth-generation master blender, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde.

Maison Hennessy uses casks of French Limousin oak to age their VS Cognac, imparting a robust, nutty note to complement the light and fruity grape characteristics. Before they even get to touch the spirit, the wood for the casks has been left outside for several years, exposing it to the changing seasons to reduce bitter flavors and develop a natural vanilla sweetness.

Tasting notes:

Colour - Deep golden color with flashes of ruby.

Nose - Fruity aromas of citrus, apple and grape. Complemented by French oak and toasted almonds. A warming presence of vanilla lingers at the back.

Palate - Young and vibrant. Fresh grape and green apples at the forefront, complemented with orange and wood. Hints of ginger beneath the surface that develops into warming winter spices - cinnamon and clove.
