Newson has taken Hennessy X.O, a complex assemblage from some of the house’s finest eaux de vie, and reinterpreted its look. Keeping the bottle’s iconic shape, he has added corrugations that not only reflect the light and magnify it, but also focus the eye on the colour of the cognac. Its clear, ergonomic shape is molded in a complex plastic more typically used for perfume bottles. It’s a wholly unexpected and beautiful presentation of an excellent spirit that is full of endless layers of flavours such as sweet notes, rising heat, spicy edges, flowing flames, chocolate lulls, and wood crunches.
