Hennessy "Black" Cognac (750ml)

SKU #1058524

I don't think anyone associates the name Hennessy with a purity of expression, the same way we don't associate Johnnie Walker with showcasing the style of any one particular distillery. Hennessy is the largest producer of Cognac in the region with stocks that outnumber every other major house combined! Hennessy has always focused on bringing brandy to the masses with an image of luxury that focuses more on consistancy than any singular purpose. With Hennessy Black, however, the Cognac giant has created a hands-off, lean, and mellow expression that rivals many of the young single cask samples we've tasted on our travels. The Black is nothing like its contemporaries at Hennessy, with a higher proof and lighter color meant for crafting a Cognac cocktail or pouring on the rocks after a meal. For the price, it's a no-brainer.

This very light, smooth Cognac is Hennessy's blend for cocktails, and it is a great one for that purpose. It is also a great contrast to the other cocktail specific Cognac we carry here at K&L, the high proof Ferrand 1840 Formula 90 proof Cognac, which is much heavier. I need both for my bar! The original Manhattan was made with Cognac, not Bourbon, and the Hennessy Black is the perfect ingredient for this classic. Stir two ounces of Hennessy Black with two ounces of Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth and a dash of Regan's Orange Bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain and serve up. Enjoy!
