Paradis was conceived in 1979 by Maurice Fillioux, a master blender at Hennessy. He blended a selection of eaux-de-vie that his grandfather had laid down. The nose is rich and deep with notes of spice and fresh flowers and blossom. There are notes of mace and cinnamon, pepper, dried peels and acacia honey. A hint of rancio. The palate is very full and complex. There are notes of fresh flowers and spice, dried fruits and candied peels. The finish is long and warming and very rounded.
