Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The bouquet features multilayered scents of baked pear/apple pastry, walnut, roasted chestnut and maple. The palate entry is firm, semisweet, oaky, and spicy; the midpalate is well-balanced, sweet, oaky and compellingly baked, with finishing touches of rancio, hard cheese and caramel. Finishes elegantly and lushly, with final parting tastes of pepper and brown sugar.
Paradis, by Hennessy, is a distinctive, elegant blend of over 100 Cognacs aged up to 130 years, creating a silky, perfectly balanced, sensory experience.
In 1774, Richard Hennessy set up a small warehouse on the right bank of the River Charente to house his rarest eaux de vie, now known as the founderís warehouse. Since then, eight generations of the Hennessy family have built up what is now the finest collection of old eaux de vie in the world. It is from these that Hennessy has been able to create Paradis Extra.
Paradis Extra is the fruit of successive marriages between hundreds of different eaux de vie, nurtured to maturity by successive generations of the same family of cellar masters
