MIXOLOGY: Limited Edition Hennessy Black Mixed Cocktail Ideas

September 7, 2011

If you haven't heard, Hennessy Black, the latest limited edition cognac added to the Hennessy family, is on a cross-country promotional tour with celebrities doing it big from city to city by hosting “Blackout” parties. A couple of the latest events were hosted by LeBron James at The Shrine in Chicago, and Tocarra Jones in Los Angeles. All “Done Different.”

Hennessy, is a prominent French cognac house and co-leader of the prestigious luxury goods company, LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy.) Hennessy Black is a blend of 35 to 45 pale and gold colored eaux-de-vie selected for their floral characteristics and aged in French oak barrels previously used by Hennessy for at least five years. Although the name might lead you to expect a darker, richer cognac, the Hennessy Black is said to have a more gentle wood influence with floral notes and hints of citrus and honey.

The taste is said to be smooth enough to drink it straight or mixed. The choice is yours.
