Mis En Place

Hennessy Black

By Xania V. Woodman

Hello, tall, dark and handsome. From one of the most respected Cognac houses comes a new, highly mixable cognac created with the club-goer in mind. Lighter in color and just a touch softer than its big brother, Hennessy V.S., Black’s aromas of fruit and white flowers give way to citrus, honey, grapes and a freshness not usually found in cognac. Try it at XS’ Sunday Nightswim in one of three sangrias presented tableside by the pitcher: Hennessy Black white peach, red berry ($200 each) and Millionaire’s sangria, topped with Moët Ice Imperial Champagne ($250).
