Golden amber coloured Paradis was created in 1979 by Maurice Fillioux when Hennessy was asked for an ‘ultra-prestige’ cognac higher in quality than XO. Everything is there but no one-note dominates. Complex with a silky attack, it has length and persistence. Made from 100 different batches, the youngest 25 years old and the eldest from the beginning of the last century (1900, 1910, 1920), it’s 85% to 90% from Grande Champagne. It has a timeless, distinguished elegance and a personality that grows as you swallow and comes back wave after wave. Savour in a snifter – no water, no ice, just bliss.
