In a world where tradition and innovation intertwine, Hennessy has long been a beacon of excellence in the realm of cognac.

With the launch of Master Blender’s Selection No. 5, the Maison continues to push the boundaries of craftsmanship, delivering a blend that is nothing short of extraordinary.

Since its inception in 2016, the Master Blender’s Selection series has been a canvas for Hennessy’s creativity and expertise.

Each release is a unique masterpiece, never to be replicated, and No. 5 is no exception.

Maestro of Flavour, Guardian of Hennessy’s Legacy

This limited-edition blend results from a meticulous selection process overseen by Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the 8th Generation Master Blender at Hennessy.

Renaud’s vision for Master Blender’s Selection No. 5 was to pay homage to the unsung heroes behind the scenes – the 18 exceptional distillers whose dedication and skill are the backbone of Hennessy’s success.

“I wanted to celebrate the collaborative spirit and expertise in the world of Cognac,” Renaud shares during its launch at St Regis, Kuala Lumpur, recently.

“These artisans are the guardians of our legacy, and their commitment to quality shines through in every drop of this blend.”

A Symphony of Flavour

The creation of Master Blender’s Selection No. 5 is a symphony of artistry and science.

The eaux-de-vie, carefully selected for their exceptional qualities, undergo a meticulous maturation process of at least seven years in French oak barrels.

The result is a cognac with a complex aroma and a smooth, velvety palate that dances on the tongue.

On the nose, Master Blender’s Selection No. 5 entices with spice and candied orange notes, hinting at the depth of flavour to come.

As it touches the palate, the cognac reveals a harmonious blend of cocoa and sweet spices and a creamy, comforting, and invigorating texture.

The finish is a lingering embrace of light tobacco and candied orange, leaving a lasting impression on the senses.
