In the glass, Hennessy VS presents itself with a vibrant golden hue, reminiscent of the sun shining over the Cognac vineyards.
On the nose, Hennessy VS is an inviting medley of fruit and floral notes, accented by layers of spice. A bouquet of grapes, French oak, and hints of vanilla come to the forefront, preparing your senses for the journey ahead.
The first sip reveals a well-balanced experience, full of texture and nuance. Rich flavors of toasted almond, fresh grapes, and citrus intertwine with subtle hints of oak and vanilla. The fruitiness is rounded off by a slight spiciness that adds complexity without overwhelming the palate.
