Hennessy Napoleon

Postby Don Henny » Fri Dec 07, 2012 1:34 pm

Qualité Napoléon : Also called "Bras d'Or". In this one, eaux-de-vie used are younger than those used in X.O.
The Hennessy "Bras d'Or" category was created in 1955 and was available until the late 1960s when the Napoleon replaced it in 1970. The Napoleon category was a continuation of the Bras d'Or category.The Bras d'Or was positioned between V.S.O.P quality and X.O quality. AGE 5 to 25 Years Old

When I first opened this bottle on a tasting night at my place, we were all stunned by this great aroma!

Nose, Light woody sence like comming into a wood after the rain, some fruit, leahter

Taste, spicy & wood, a bit of nuts on the background "a light sharp fine cognac" if you know what I mean.... It's really hard to defind this one as there is so much going on on the nose and while I drink this, a lot of flavours that I cannot exaclty define come through

If you love a good cognac, with an aroma which light up your nose this is definatly a nice one to open and enjoy!

"while I drink this, a lot of flavours that I cannot exaclty define come through."



I was sipping on a nice Armagnac last night and had the exact same impression. Didn't make me enjoy it any less!! I think complexity keeps a drink interesting.
