    My first Cognac

    I was at the liquor store today and was perusing the shelf of 50 mL bottles of spirits. Noticing the Martell Cordon Bleu, I decided to finally buy and try (I've been meaning to for a while now). I poured myself some this evening and....

    I could get used to the stuff. It was quite good. In a bang for your buck sense, I'll stick with bourbon, but I could see myself splurging on a good bottle of cognac to have every once in a while. (But first.....a second bottle of PVW20).

    Even though I usually drink whiskey, every now and then I get into the mood for brandy. A good Cognac (or Armagnac as well) can be a real treat.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Agreed. I am personally partial to the Ferrand lineup.

    Remy's Louis XIII is something that can't even be described. It blows the finest of XO's out of the water.
    I wish I tried the Black Pearl when I had the chance.
