Hennessy’s Master Blender’s Selection No. 4 wins ‘best Cognac’ in Robb Report Singapore’s Best of the Best 2021 awards


In this year’s Best of the Best, we continue to honour the brands and people who have continued to create covetable products, even in the midst of a global pandemic. Here, we have Hennessy’s Master Blender’s Selection No. 4 win ‘best Cognac’ in the wine and spirits category

The fourth edition in a limited series from renowned Cognac house Hennessy is also the second created by eighth-generation master blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, who says the special release was inspired by the sights, sounds and smells encountered during a winter walk in the mountains. The bottle contains eaux de vie aged for at least five years in French red-oak barrels, with apricot, candied orange and fruity spice on the palate, but with a lightness one might not expect from such a rich Cognac. The Master Blender’s Selection is truly a series of one-offs, a world away from the core VS and VSOP expressions and never to be re-created, so each one – and especially this one – is worth a trophy position on your bar cart.
