Top 5 Best Cognacs For The Money
1. Hennessy XO (Extra Old)
$120 to $200 a bottle – 750ML.
A six-year old cognac.
This cognac was created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870. X.O was at the time a new form of cognac: gutsy, full bodied and elegant. Some of the 100 eaux-de-vie used to make X.O were aged for 30 years, making it bold. Maurice Hennessy named it X.O as in “Extra Old”cognac. Hennessy XO has notes of candied fruit on the tongue and spice on the nose. It is smooth and warm with hints of cacao with a long finish. We recommend you drink it neat, or with a dash of still water.
