Hello, today i like to introduce you to another Hennessy collectible. The Hennessy Single Distillery Le Peu Cognac. This edition was introduced in the year 1999 next to two other Editions called Camp Romain and Izambard. Le Peu is the name of one of Hennessy´s distilleries. As I said it was introduced and sold from 1999 but is discontinued. The range of the retail price was between 55 and 70 Euro, depending in which European country you bought it. Although discontinued it has not reached a significant worth increase so far, but this will change after I published this post. Since I check all the prices on the net, there is always an increase compared to the day I publish a post and afterwards, although I only got about 15.000 visitors per year.
Anyway, lets get to the interesting part. The Hennessy Le Peu is the only Cognac which comes in a tube. The Izambard and the Camp Romain have only boxes. Compared to the current releases this bottle comes in very simple design, since it´s quite good ( I guess ) there was no need for an extraordinary design.
The Le peu is available in two sizes 700ml and a mini version of 50 or 30ml ( since I don’t got the mini I don’t know which size it got ) . An interesting fact is that the mini cost the same or even more than the 700ml edition, which is from my point of view more than irrational. The bottles were sold as a 3 bottle set in a wodden display or single with or without boxes.
However it’s a bottle which every Hennessy Collector must have and the connoisseur of fine Cognac should have one too, since they rate the regular Hennessy Cognacs quite low.
The colour of the spirit is pretty bright, maybe they didn’t use that much caramel as usual, but I cannot and won´t tell, just like I said before I don’t really taste the fruits and all that stuff those fine sommeliers like to tell you.
Please enjoy the pictures ( sorry for the poor quality – will repicture soon ) of this simple but not regular Hennessy and make sure to get one if you like too, I got two bottles and if you want one feel free to use the comment button. As always if you have further info please leave a comment.
As a little extra I embedded a video showing the current master of the Le Peu distillery teaching some basic knowledge in an interview. Enjoy the video and the Hennessy Le Peu Cognac and make sure to hit like on facebook to get the latest post of my collection. Thank you
