Chef Darren Chin and Hennessy present Hennessy X.O Odyssey 2017

Sweet notes, wood crunches, flowing flame, rising heat and a chocolate lull experienced across an infinite echo with a spicy edge. These are the seven chapters of the Hennessy X.O multisensory experience, brought to life on the palate with this year’s edition of the Hennessy X.O Odyssey.

Over a month between July and August, Chef Darren Chin of DC Restaurant invites discerning gourmands to partake in a specially curated menu. Each course pairs with a measure of Hennessy X.O served either neat, on the rocks or with a dash of water to best compliment the culinary story.

Describing the collaboration, Chin said “The menu is a clear expression of chef and cognac as one entity. Not only have I found a balance with Hennessy X.O, I have created a menu that is luxurious, bold and utterly decadent."

The menu for this year’s Hennessy X.O Odyssey will be available at DC Restaurant from July 18 to August 15 — every Tuesday through Sunday — at RM888++ per guest. Reservations can be made via the DC restaurant website or via phone at +603 7731 0502 or +6012 223 2991.
