The House of HINE, a subsidiary of EDV SAS, announced the U.S. release of HINE Cigar Reserve XO, a rich and distinctive cognac crafted to sip alongside premium Cuban cigars, the company says. HINE Cigar Reserve XO features a blend of 20 eau-de-vie produced using Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois grapes aged for more than 15 years, the company says. 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, resulting in a rich and opulent cognac filled with complex layers of spice, fresh pepper and tobacco underscored by walnut, honey and lightly toasted flavors, it adds. Packaged in 750-ml bottles with 598 six-bottle cases allocated for sale in the United States, HINE Cigar Reserve XO is available at select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $150.
