Hennessy Paradis Extra Rare Cognac
Hennessy cognac is internationally recognised as a symbol of luxury, power and passion.
In 1774, Richard Hennessy set up a small warehouse on the right bank of the River Charente to house his rarest eaux-de-vie. It is now known as the Founder’s Warehouse. Since then, eight generations of the Hennessy family have built up what is now the finest collection of old eaux-de-vie in the world. It is from these that Hennessy has been able to create Paradis Extra. A blend of over 100 ‘eaux-de-vie’ and aged alongside other great ‘eaux-de-vie’s of its generation.
Hennessy Paradis exemplifies a veritble firework display of spices and peppery notes, softened by the fragrant scent of flowers. Finesse and elegance are the major characteristics. Perfectly harmonious in the mouth, Paradis reveals itself to be smooth, full-bodied and long lasting on the palate. Its force and finesse, plus the delicate flavour of rancio, gives it a perfect balance.
Exceptional cognacs such as Paradis Extra should be enjoyed in tall, thin glasses that narrow slightly towards the top. Such glasses retain the aroma and transmit easily the warmth of the hands to the spirit. Releasing its freshness and fruitiness, take a small mouthful; the flavor fills the palate with a fine and long finish.
