I have been interested in Armagnac for awhile and Ralfy's recent reviews have brought it to mind again.

This article provides some general info - http://nymag.com/restaurants/article...r/armagnac.htm

Can anyone recommend a "reasonable" i.e. $35-60 bottle of Armagnac?

For example, Binnys lists:
Delord Napoleon 10 Year Old Armagnac 34.99
Cerbois VSOP Armagnac 49.99
Marie Duffau Hors d'Age Armagnac 49.99
Delord 25 Year Old Armagnac 69.99

Calvados is another new to me spirit....any similar recommondations?
