Professional Wine Reviews for Hennessy Cognac Master Blender's Selection No. 3

Rated 92 by Vinous Media
The single-batch bottling, aged at least seven years, resembles one that might be used for a craft rye whiskey, and from the taste profile it seems clear that rye drinkers are the intended target. Dark amber in color, with a nose full of wood and rye-like spice and underlying pastry aromas. The rye theme carries onto the palate, where it’s hot and spicy at first, then the spice falls off and flavors of toffee, hazelnut, and plum tart take over. As a general spirit, this is drinkable and enjoyable, but as a Cognac at this price, it’s a bit unfocused and doesn’t know what it wants to be. Still, worth a try, and could convert a whiskey drinker. (43% abv)

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
