Hennessy Master Blender's Selection No. 3 Hard to find in stock !

Master Blender's Selection No. 3 is a single batch, rare blend available for a limited time, and will never be replicated.

The third edition in the series is the very first creation of Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the 8th generation Master Blender, who carefully selected each eau-de-vie for its complementary personality and taste to define the blend’s character.

At Hennessy, Cognac is not made, it is crafted. To reflect this philosophy, Hennessy introduced the Master Blender's Selection, a limited edition series of single-batch Cognacs crafted for no other purpose than complete freedom of expression. Like a handwritten letter, Hennessy's Master Blender's Selection series is designed to be a personal statement, composed purely for the pleasure of intimate creation. It serves as the ultimate expression of the Master Blender's creativity, imagination and predilection for certain eaux-de-vie.

A true craft Cognac, Hennessy Master Blender's Selection N°3 is unique and innovative by virtue of its hand-selected blending process. The blend is composed exclusively of high-quality eaux-de-vie with great potential that have been set aside specifically to be used at the Master Blender's discretion.

Crafted from eaux-de-vie that are at least seven years old, Hennessy Master Blender's Selection N°3 is a light amber Cognac with golden reflections. The blend is characterized by roundness, featuring delicious notes of French sponge cake and toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, Master Blender's Selection N°3 is delightfully subtle and velvety yet persistent, with a touch of praline on the finish. In keeping with the tradition of this craft Cognac series, N°3 is bottled at 43%, also known as "cask strength," the ideal level for preserving each eau-de-vie's distinct personality.

Unlike most Hennessy Cognacs, Master Blender's Selection is a true single batch: blended only once, never again to be replicated. It is best enjoyed neat or over a large rock to ensure the Cognac's structure remains intact. As befits a craft Cognac, Hennessy Master Blender's Selection N°3 will be available exclusively in the U.S.

At Maison Hennessy, it is said that cognac is not made, it’s crafted. It is a precise blend of heritage, passion and transmission that are the essence of our craft. Nothing captures the spirit of craftsmanship more than the Master Blender’s Selection – a unique series of limited edition blend.

Hennessy debuted Master Blender’s Selection N°3, the third expression in their limited series of fine spirits. This is the first blend from Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the 8th generation Master Blender and the successor to Master Blender Yann Fillioux who is his uncle. Renaud knocked it out of the park on his first attempt for Maison Hennessy.

This craft cognac used 20 rare eaux-de-vie (French for a clear, colorless fruit brandy) that are at least seven years old and have never been used in any of their previous expression. They are aged in young French oak barrels and finished in older Hennessy casks.

For this one-of-a-kind blend, on the nose, it has an aroma of vanilla and sweet pralines. On the palate, there is a more praline and roasted pecan flavor with spice notes of nutmeg. Master Blender’s Selection N°3 is capped off with an extremely smooth and satisfying finish despite it being 43% ABV.

Hennessy’s tasting notes:

Eye: Light amber with a golden sheen

Nose: Fresh, light and aromatic, akin to those found in sweet pastries. In addition, there is a distinct flavour of toasted hazelnuts that highlights the blend’s unique character.

Palate: On the palate there is an unmistakable presence of aromas, such as soft textured pastries with a hint of praline. The blend is best described as elegant and subtle–an experience of smoothness from start to finish.
