A series of highly-conceptualised meal courses, an intimate dining ambiance, and upscale drinks — all of these contribute to a top notch fine dining experience
This is where you get to enjoy the kind of food that's paired with finely aged liquor, meant to be savoured slowly, as the flavours dance on your palate from course to course.
Now, you can enjoy a personalised fine dining affair at your favourite luxury restaurants with Hennessy's The Odyssey Experience, an elevated dining experience that curates meal courses that'll pair perfectly with the Hennessy X.O
Partnering with multiple established and esteemed local eateries across Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Ipoh, and Penang, The Odyssey Experience is set to take you on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery.
This is only possible with Hennessy X.O, an extra aged cognac that offers seven memorable tasting notes, making it truly one of a kind.
Best of all, the meal courses from each local eatery are intricately curated to bring out distinct flavours that pair with the cognac's unique notes perfectly, providing you a multi-sensorial experience like no other.
Here are the seven taste chapters of Hennessy X.O:
Experience a warm embrace as you taste flavours of candied fruits.
Experience the intriguing sensation of an intense, rising heat, before being greeted with the complex taste of eau de vie patiently aged in oak barrels.
Every sip tantalises your lips and palate, as the strong, spicy cognac is accompanied by a distinct peppery flavour and a hint of chocolate.
As you sip on the cognac, you'll be greeted with a wave of warmth, which then breaks and presents a full-bodied heat.
With every sip you take, you'll discover the familiar, well-rounded flavour of a rich, dark chocolate.
After a fleeting moment of the chocolate and heat, you'll immediately taste the sturdy ebb and oaky notes intertwined with vanilla.
Finally, you'll experience the lasting taste and sensation of the evanescent oak notes.
