One of the leading cognac houses of france, along with Remy Martin and Courvoisier. The colloquial term "Hennessey" usually refers to Hennessey V.S. -- Very Superior -- which is in essence a brandy distilled from grapes in the Cognac region of france and aged for a minimum of two years in oak barrels. This imbues the brandy with a remarkable smoothness and complexity of flavors that is unequalled anywhere else in the world.
Hennessey also comes in a variety of other forms, from most common to rarest:
V.S. - Very Superior - minimum two years aging in oak barrels, $40/bottle
V.S.O.P. - Very Superior Old Pale - minimum four years aging in oak barrels, $70/bottle
X.O. - Extra Old - minimum six years aging in oak barrels, $150/bottle
Paradis - proprietary blend of eaux-de-vie from the private reserves of Hennessey varying in age from 10 to 25 years, $300/bottle
Richard Hennessey - proprietary blend of eaux-de-vie from the private reserves of Hennessey varying in age from 20 to 50 years, $1500/bottle
There also exists a very limited release of Hennessey dubbed "Timeless", of which only two thousand bottles were put on the market at an approximate value of $4000/bottle. Timeless consists of a blend of ten cognacs from the very best vintages of the last century.
V.S., V.S.O.P., X.O., Paradis, Richard Hennessey, Timeless
A relatively inexpensive (Hennessy V.S aprox. USD$40-60) brand of cognac that makes people feel important when they drink it for three reasons:
1) Hennessy and cognac are fun to pronounce and also sound classy and distinguished.
2) A bottle can run anywhere from $40 - $4000, therefore showing that the consumer can afford lots of bling
3) Its mentioned a lot in rap/r&b music.
Even though it cost of Hennessy is expensive (as is any cognac) it tastes like an alcoholic tea that is made from ground rectum and pig feces. Over consumption of any cognac can cause arrogance, violent behavior, and massive diarrhea and vomiting (usually simultaneously).
Person 1: Why did you get a new leather jacket, a Ferrari, and 20 pounds of gold chains?
Person 2: Its the Hennessey.
Person 1: Wait, did you just shit your pants?

The number one gangster liquor/alcohol. 2Pac's preference!

Pass me the bottle of Hennessey!
A classy, full flavor liquor that is mentioned in many rap/r&b tunes. Enjoyed on the rocks, with a spash of coke, or with a whole lot of ganja. If you don't like this drink you need to turn 17 or move out of the boondocks because this is where it's at.
What's gotten into me? drugs, rock and Hennessy
a pricey liquor preffered by OG's, pimps, and wannabe gangsters alike
Bartender, hook a brother up with them Hennessey shots
