Hey, as for the ones who might have not recognized it: Hennessy changed the bottles and the designs of their whole product line!
However this post is about the new limited edition 2014 Hennessy XO Cognac. Not the VIII though. 2014 was a good year for collectors. 3 different XO limited editions, but this didn’t get the attention it should have.
This is Hennessy XO not designed by Tom Dixon. But this Henny has the new bottle shape and a different label, maybe even a different blend.
It was released in the fall of 2014. Besides me everybody slept on it. It a 700ml bottle btw.
This edition comes in the regular size cardboard box, with golden foil inlay. Kept in a classic gold/black colour combination and the line “limited edition” almost on every side.
It is not numbered and only available at wholesalers so far.
The only thing I can surely say that it is rarer than the VIII, which was the first release of the exclusive line, which was released in Germany too…
Besides the 140th I always had to get them from different countries But this post ain´t about the Dixon or Collins or whoever designed the VIII.
The new XO bottle shape is kept in the design of the Hennessy Paradis with a thick line at the outline of the bottle.
As from now on it still won´t be a good idea to stock the regular xo´s which will be sold out over the next 2 years…
I personally like the new xo shape, compared to the new VS shape, it is really an improvement.
So far I could fetch three of this babies btw. Still looking out for them though.
The edition is a must have for any XO collection, you should not sleep on it.
Instead of words, check out the pictures.
Have a great new start in 2k15.
