Marc’s limited edition design gives the signature Hennessy X.O decanter a wholly unexpected twist. Once he had pared the bottle’s shape to its purest form, Marc chose to reprise its traditional decorative motifs – grapes and leaves – in a corrugated relief. These striations are perhaps the most daring design elements ever incorporated on the iconic Hennessy X.O decanter. “For this project, glass itself was the inspiration alongside the heritage of the Hennessey brand and the cognac itself. Glass is one of the most ancient man-made materials and its transparency can be used to create magical effects. Looking at the various hues of the cognac through the prism of glass is just one part of what should be a multi-sensorial and beautiful experience. Straight lines seemed to me a more modern interpretation of what already existed - the stripes really emphasize the strength of the decanter’s shape. When they catch the light, they highlight both the bottle and the contents, making the whole feel warmer and more tactile. “ This limited edition bottle is created by industrial designer Marc Newson. Fragrant and generous scents of crystallized fruit, oak, spices and emanations of old leather. Lovely long aftertaste of cinnamon and vanilla. Blended from specially selected Cognacs.
Sweet Notes: Flavors of candied fruit embrace the palate as the faint sweetness of oranges fuses with the subtle tartness of apricots.
Rising Heat: Warm fruit flavors lead into a sensation of rising heat, slowly revealing the complex taste of patiently aged eaux-de-vie.
Spicy Edge: A strong spicy note tantalizes the palate with distinct peppery overtones.
Flowing Flame: A wave of warmth breaks into immense roundness. Robust and voluptuous.
Chocolate Lull: The familiar, well-rounded flavor of a rich, dark chocolate caresses the palate with silky, slightly sweet smoothness.
Wood Crunches: The striking sensation of oak notes interlaced with vanilla makes its presences felt and then subsides.
Infinite Echo: Evanescent oak notes leave a long, omnipresent finish, echoing the subtleties of each flavor and the complexity of Hennessy X.O’s blending and long aging process.
