Question: What the big deal with Hennessy!? Why is it a big deal!?

Hennessy is a French Brandy (also called Cognac)!. It is a "big deal" because a bunch of rappers and entertainers drink it and make it "cool"!.

I've met many true cognac drinkers that think Hennessy is junk, and I tend to agree!. I've even heard rumors that they add caramel coloring to it to make it seem like it has seen more oak than it really has!. Not sure if that is true!.

The flavor is similar to brandy, but much more oaky and earthy!. A 750 bottle usually goes for around $28, and is available almost everywhere!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I don't know what the big deal is with Hennessy!. I personally don't like the taste!. It's made out of distilled grapes and it tastes like really musty and sour grape juice!. I don't know anyone who buys it more than once a year!. The cost, at least in Minnesota, is $38 for a 750ml!.

If you want to drink good cognac, save your money and buy something really expensive, like $140 for Hennessy XO or $150 for Remy Martin XO that have been aged for 20-30 years!. That is how cognac is supposed to be enjoyed!.

Brandy is the German equivalent to cognac as it too is made with grapes!. It's better priced and would be a good place to start!. If you like that, then you might enjoy cognac!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

All that they said is true but they forgot to tell what everyone drinks it with!. Some straight up or with coke but most of my customers drink it with Red Bull in a drink!. Drink or shot it runs about $8!.00!. For a bottle here in WA State is somewhere in the price range the told you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

hennessy is just a really good tasting cognac!. its just really popular because its in a bunch of music videos!. and rappers talk about it all the time!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
