Hennessy VS is one of the most famous Cognacs in the world, the typical bottle shape is iconic. The VS stands for “Very Special” and means that the youngest eaux-de-vie in this blend are at least 2.5 years old.
So that actually means that this Cognac is a rather young one compared to others. The average age is apparently somewhere between 2,5 and 5 years. So if you want to have cognac neat, and like it smooth, you might want to pick a different cognac bottle.
