The Master Blender’s No 2 is a personal blend and a distinctive expression of the Hennessy craft. A hand selected single batch cognac, it is a one-of-a-kind limited offering. Crafted as if it were a recipe for sharing with family and friends, the blend is unique by virtue of its singularity and its hand-curated selection process. Like an intricate freehand portrait, it is an intimate expression of creativity and passion. To evoke the blend, Paris born illustrator Ugo Gattoni conjured a large-scale dreamscape that capture the meticulous attention to detail that is essential to the Master Blender’s craft. The Master Blender’s No 2 is the second in a series, the result of a passion project initiated by forcer Hennessy master blender Yann Filioux. They are unique Cognacs of limited supply, never to be duplicated. The eaux-de-vie are aged at least 10 years, and were each aged for 18 months in young coarse-grained French oak barrels before being transferred to old barrels for additional aging. Cognacs rich oak aromas recall its aging in young oak barrels. On the palate it expresses spicy notes with a strong character and rounded finish. It is bottled at 43% to highlight the precision of the blending.
