NOY 10 Armenian Brandy

NOY 10 Armenian Brandy

Another Armenian brandy today. Buckle up for a coke-versus-pepsi comparison I think is rather apt!
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Chalfonte Cognac

Chalfonte Cognac

A totally rock-solid cognac and representative of the category. So much so, in fact, that it becomes hard to find something novel about this bottle to talk about.
Overall Rating: ★★☆


De Luze VSOP Cognac

De Luze VSOP Cognac

There's a lot of fun, interesting cognac out there I've never heard of. Here's another to show that those who veer from the beaten path are often rewarded for their curiosity.
Overall Rating: ★★☆ 

Courvoisier VSOP Cognac

Courvoisier VSOP Cognac

Is it downright awful? No. That said, it's hard to reward what I feel is the taste of resting on centuries-old laurels.

Korbel Brandy

Korbel Brandy

Ever smell something that brings you back to a particular time and place? Perhaps a time and a place you're thankful you haven't experienced in a while? Buckle up for a vivid story!

Hardy VS Cognac

Hardy VS Cognac

Support your smaller producer with this lesser-known but fully-capable cognac. The Hardy VS is a solidly crafted spirit that would serve as a great entry point for the cognac clueless.  Overall Rating: ★★☆

Ararat Akhtamar Armenian Brandy

Ararat Akhtamar Armenian Brandy

Armenian Brandy has a pretty rich and storied history. My Armenian friends might be wrong when it comes to System of a Down, but they're certainly not messing around with the Ararat Akhtamar 10.  Overall Rating: ★★☆

E&J XO Brandy

E&J XO Brandy

Yes, it's a $14 brandy. By all accounts it should be terrible, but either I'm a broken person or there's a lot of value and comfort here. 
Overall Rating: ★★☆
