Hine Talent

Top 10 Cognacs

Hine Talent is presented inside a humidor made of Honduran mahogany

Origin: Grande Champagne, France; $7,390 (750 ml)

Talent was created in 1991 by Bernard and Jacques Hine to honor the bicentennial of their grandfather’s arrival in France. As is befitting so grand an occasion, the brothers Hine quite literally pulled out all the stops. Talent is culled from the Hine cellars’ finest Cognacs. It offers a flavor with heavy undertones of fruit and comes packaged inside an ornate, Baccarat crystal decanter, this placed inside a humidor custom-made from Honduran mahogany.
