Hennessy XO Cognac limited edition 2014 – another exclusive

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.

The former xo didn’t have that line. And no purple colour…

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.

The Hennessy VSOP Cognac duty free 2014 Limited red label 1000ml edition – European Traveller´s exclusive

Long time no see… Anyway i start the comeback with introducing the newest European exclusive Hennessy VSOP edition. Released at the end of the summer 2014 the VSOP is only available at selected duty free retailers and is almost sold out…

As typical for European editions this bottle is not numbered, somehow most us editions are, but honestly its not really neccessary…

The edition is released as a 1000ml or one liter bottle.

It calls itself Travel edition and seems to be inspired by traveling… Typically for Hennessy many different countries are mentioned on the box, but not Germany…

However the main colour of the tag is red, it has red metallic emboided import labels of vintage Hennessy labels, showing their global approach, the cid is printed in silver. Compared to the us and international edition it is pretty plain, maybe because showing off aint that popular in Europe.

The glas is not painted and you can see the caramel coloured Cognac in this chubby bottle. I have to admit that i like the bottle though, the recent VS editions are pretty boring, since they just have colourful labels but no new kind of design…

As mentioned they forgot about Germany, i think because they still dont like us, however there are a lot countries lined up on the end of the neckseal and on the box as well as the first years when they hit the shelfs on that certain soil.

The Hennessy VSOP red label edition is not that easy to get and already increased in value…

The box matches the bottle, plain but advanced design. Blood red, black and silver are the main colours, with a photoshopped picture of the bottle on one side.

I took a few pictures, for you to enjoy the new Hennessy VSOP 2014 EU red label.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Cheers
