We all have that one day. You know, the day when everything is so hard to do and when our motivation is set to ground zero. My sidekick for days like this is always a well-aged spirit. We humans don’t like ages, but spirits love them. Here is our first exceptional spirits review – Hennessy Paradis Review.
Every age brings some of that velvety texture and reveals fragrant character on a whole new level. Well, Hennessy Paradis is one of the really matured spirits. Its oldest eaux-de-vie comes from 1870, and in this blend, you can find approximately one hundred exceptional Eaux-de-vie.
The aroma reveals a complex and rich structure separated into more layers. At first, you smell a spicy palate of pepper, cardamom, and cinnamon. Right after that, you’ll find some berry fruit, maybe even dried or crystallized berries. When these fragrances are exposed, you can find some really complex aromas. Some dried roses and honey with truffles. The taste comes very slowly, and, at first, it reveals spicy and fruity notes with a nice bouquet of aromas. The aftertaste is very silky and reminds you again of that spicy character with dried roses. I wouldn’t mind just a bit longer, though.

How to Enjoy Hennessy Paradis Rare Cognac?
With a cognac like this, I like really good chocolate or some matured cheeses. However, my favorite bite with this one is a recipe from Gordon Ramsay. It is bread and butter pudding, with a little twist. I add some blue cheese and instead of apricots, I add berries. Should you buy Hennessy Paradis Rare Cognac? Well, if you’re looking for some investment, for sure. Hennessy Paradis Rare Cognac is getting more and more expensive because some of the oldest “Eaux-de-vie” are very rare. But don’t be too enthusiastic, because after all, it is not that rare. You can find it in a bigger grocery store, so…
If you have some extra money and you’re looking for a good comfort spirit, yeah, sure, go and give yourself a treat. Pamper yourself for your special day and drink it whenever you appreciate this beautiful life. However, to be honest, you can find another pleasant style cognac for less money with the same rollercoaster of flavors and aromas.
