    Louis XX is tastier.

    This is the kind of cognac that destroys taking a good drink for granted. It sets the bar, and you will be ruined forever. It will be that one that got away. It will define your palate. A unicorn. For me, the initial flavor was of rich applewood. As you savor it, holding on the palate, it evolves to spiced honey. As it breathes in the sniffer and your hand warms it, the dream intensifies. This cognac should not be enjoyed with any food, and not even an hour or more prior. It is a singular experience and deserves the respect of no distractions and quiet contemplation. Close your eyes. Take a sip. Breathe. You're alive.


Cognac is a type of brandy that takes its name from the Cognac region of France. Made from twice-distilled white wine, Cognac is distilled in copper pots and aged in wooden barrels. The production techniques of Cognac are very specific, requiring a particular type of grapes, distillation practices and aging requirements.
Hennessy is a Cognac that is made in France but was started by an Irishman. Despite the common belief that Hennessy is a type of whiskey, it is made from grapes — grapes that have been twice-distilled and aged. The only notable similarity it bears to whiskey is that both are aged in oak barrels.
Cognac consumed as an appetizer is usually served neat. It’s also common practice to add a little bit of water, which makes the drink fruitier and more floral. Some water can also help to bring out the subtle spiciness of Cognac while also making it a bit smoother to drink.
