Hine Announces US Release for Cigar Reserve XO
French fine cognac producer, the House of Hine, has announced the US release of Hine Cigar Reserve XO, a rich and distinctive cognac crafted to sip alongside premium Cuban cigars.
The Cognac expression is the result of a collaboration between the House of Hine and Hunters & Frankau of London, the UK’s exclusive distributor of Havana cigars, to orchestrate an experience that caters to the desires of cigar aficionados.
“At Hine, we take great pride in crafting a dynamic range of quality cognac for discerning palates, but perhaps more importantly, we mindfully craft each expression through an experiential lens, blending to achieve specific profiles for specific experiences,” said Thibaut Delrieu, HINE Commercial Director.
“Hine Cigar Reserve XO is no exception. With countless parallels between cognac and cigars, we spent years working to find the perfect balance of aromatic and flavor complexity tailored to complement the first puffs of a powerful and fragrant medium-bodied Havana cigar.”
Cigar Reserve XO features a blend of 20 eau-de-vie produced using Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, and Fins Bois grapes aged for over 15 years. Crafted in a bold style to stand up to the intensity of a strong and flavorful cigar, Cigar Reserve is the only expression in the Hine portfolio blended with Fins Bois grapes, known for their concentrated flavors and robust aromatic profile.
Hine Cigar Reserve XO (750ml) is now available in select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $150. For more information visit the House of Hine website.
