Louis Royer VSOP Cognac
Mat,
Enjoyable cognac and really decent value. Just a touch of harshness, but really lovely flavours, particularly given the price
Merlet Brothers Blend Cognac
Stan,
This was absolutely fantastic! Had trouble limiting myself to one glass.
Frérot Extra Cognac
Susanna,
This was the best cognac I have ever tasted. It was smooth and full of character.
Guillon-Painturaud VSOP Cognac
Robert,
At the first swallow there is a slight burn and hotness. Otherwise a mild spirit and light yellow color with smoothness with multiple subtle flavors at the finish. Quit good for the price. A cigar with it is my next test, let you know.
Levon Petite Champagne VSOP Cognac
David,
A few things you need to know about me. I never drank beer, in fact something in beer makes me sick. I didn't drink alcohol until I was married and over 21. Before we married we planned to spend our first anniversary in Europe (1963) and we did, self guided. To prepare we tasted wines to determine what we liked, we would have to drink wine with meals. I am 79 and never tasted spirits until now. To write a review could be unfair. One exception to drinking spirits is that I have had Irish whiskey for years, my paternal grandmother was a McCary. Many of my selections will be a first time for me.
Guillon-Painturaud VSOP Cognac
Ray,
Hot and spicy honey raisin. Not as smooth as I would have liked.
Paul Beau VSOP Cognac
Ray,
Hot and spicy fruit. Not as smooth as I would have liked.
Maison Surrenne Cognac VSOP
Ray,
Sweet, fruity and smooth. Reminded me of a combination of honey butter bread and plums. Very tasty.
Baron Otard VSOP
Tyrone,
Spectacular drink
Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal Cognac
Ward,
It was good. You can really feel the warmth as you drank it. First time having cognac and I thought it would be sweet... still I would drink it on a dreary day.
Hennessy Master Blender's Selection No. 3 Limited Edition Cognac
Antonio,
Good, but not worth the price IMO.
Levon Petite Champagne VSOP Cognac
Jake,
The bottle was recommended by Flaviar and it is my first cognac I've purchased. I first opened this last night after a long day watching the kids and watching my wife shop. I sat down with a glass, taking my first sip. A wonderful sweet, smooth, flavorful experience was had. Finds like this is why I joined the club!
Courvoisier VSOP Cognac
Craig,
A little spicy and not as fruity as I prefer.
Guillon-Painturaud VSOP Cognac
Tor,
Wow! What a beauty. Not similar to a traditional Remy or Hennessy, very light and smooth. Lighter in color than your typical Cognac. Honey and Pear... flowers, amazing, especially for $61!
Levon Petite Champagne VSOP Cognac
Tor,
I feel this is a very "traditional" cognac, similar to a Remy VSOP in style. So for $41, pretty good, won't beat some of my favorites, but they are also more expensive.
Hardy Cognac Legend 1863
Isiah,
Good, sweet to my taste buds. Easy to drink straight.
Louis Royer XO Cognac
Antonio,
Really good
Merlet VS Cognac
Andrew,
First taste was a little harsh but the further I got got into the glass the better it became. I am a novis cognac drinker but I really enjoyed this one in the end.
Frérot Extra Cognac
Chris,
I know nothing about Cognac and only bought this to try it alongside an episode of #NightCapLive. I'm also not a huge Brandy fan. That being said this blew me away. It was so smooth and so exquisite in nose, taste, and finish. Absolutely the soul warming liquid your dreams think Cognac taste like. I really can't fault it. This bottle should be your Christmas staple.
Paul Beau VSOP Cognac
Rafael,
Think of it as a Courvoisier VSOP but with a mango-forward accent. Can’t miss it and can’t go wrong!
Paul Giraud Tres Rare Cognac
Jason,
Amazing cognac. Wonderful nose with vanilla, fruit, chocolate and leather. Buttery smooth, rich with a bit of oak spice on the finish. Masterful.
Merlet VS Cognac
Antonio,
Pretty good for the price
Paul Beau VSOP Cognac
Paulo,
This is a nice Cognac with some exotic fruit such as lychees, a hint of vanilla. The flavor is very consistent with the nose and the finish is a bit thin and light. I would not get out of my way to get it but if offered, I'd be happy to have a sip.
Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal Cognac
Paulo,
Awesome cognac with a complex, pleasing nose of fruit and vanilla, bundles of flavor and a finish that lasts for ages. Like another reviewer, this is my benchmark Cognac.
Gourry de Chadeville Overproof Cognac
Paulo,
Not sure I get the point of this. It is very young spirit that did not spend much time in barrel. It has some of the characteristic aromas of a new spirit such as banana peel, a hint of smoke, some saltiness, not very complex. It may appeal for someone that likes young whisky, but when I look for a cognac I want a smooth, refined, complex and well balanced spirit.
Guillon-Painturaud VSOP Cognac
James,
had strength of character and sits at the spirit end (rather than wine end) of cognac spectrum; appeals to the whiskey lover more than the wine lover
Paul Beau VSOP Cognac
James,
struck nice notes of vanilla and caramel; subtle, less fruity, and hint of spice
Maison Surrenne Cognac VSOP
James,
approachable Cognac, fruity and sweet; sort of a starter sip for the uninitiated; after dinner at the table to perhaps accompany a salty cheese, but wont stand up to cigar on the terrace
Hardy Cognac Legend 1863
John,
Tasty, a little heavy on the prune flavor for my liking. But solid as a sipper!
Levon Petite Champagne VSOP Cognac
Francisco,
I love the nose, and the taste is super smooth
Frérot Extra Cognac
Ezekiel,
This is truly one of the most delightful beverages I've ever had. A sweet, datey nose and a smooth, slightly spiced and fruity finish. Whether you've had cognac before or not, this is one that you should snap up and try before it disappears.
Baron Otard VSOP
David,
A nice earthy cognac
Merlet VSOP Cognac
Alan,
I found this to be a mediocre sipping cognac but to be good for cocktails. It has a nice cognac taste at first but melded into a rye spice and burn. Blended with amaretto it makes a wonderful French Connection.
Guillon-Painturaud VSOP Cognac
Jesse,
Very smooth and interesting taste. Of the brandy and cognac I’ve tasted I like this the best.
Frérot Extra Cognac
ADAM,
Burn on the nose not on the tongue. Very smooth and delicious.
Grey Goose Vodka
Darren,
Pure perfection. My reference for clear effortless spirit.
Baron Otard VSOP
Clifford,
Delicious! I taste the pair in the bouquet right away!
Merlet VSOP Cognac
Allen,
The fourth time I have ordered it. I think that speaks for itself. One of the smoothest yet strongest tasting cognacs I’ve had.
Maison Surrenne Cognac VSOP
Paulo,
I sampled this twice: on its own and side-by-side with the Remy Martan 1738 Accord Royal. The nose is a bit simple with a metallic note in the middle surrounded by fruits such as apples and peaches. A little vanilla cream shows itself in the background. Compared to the Remy it is too simple and not to the same level. On the palate it is fruity, sweet, with some floral notes. The palate and mouth feel are much better than the nose. The finish is long, sweet and floral. Again, the Remy trumps it here with a more complex palate with more wood notes interlaced with fresh fruit. Overall it is an ok drink but for the price there are better options out there.
Guillon-Painturaud VSOP Cognac
Andrew,
I want more! This sweet and flavorful VSOP was very drinkable. Honey and elderflower hit me much more than toffee. Almost like a sweet low burn bourbon this smelled and tasted great neat, or with a touch of clean room temp water.
Levon Petite Champagne VSOP Cognac
James,
I am still new to this trying new types of liquor but this one I have to just slip on it slow. Smooth on the way down and just want to keep it on the bar. I will buy again for sure.
Baron Otard VSOP
Victor,
Love it
Frérot Extra Cognac
Daniel,
very smooth and enjoyable
Merlet Brothers Blend Cognac
Arnold,
Very harsh. Needed 3 glasses to appreciate the flavors
Hardy Cognac Legend 1863
Scott,
Wowww!! New to cognac,this is phenomenal.. coffee and chocolate finish.. fantastic
Frapin VIP XO Cognac
Kevin,
Very nice! Smooth & silky, with a nice spicy finish, saving this one for the cold winter nights by the fire with a nice cigar.
Grey Goose Vodka
Pat,
Really smooth.
Merlet VSOP Cognac
Michael,
Incredibly smooth. Literally melts in your mouth. Not sure of the actual flavor profile, but I get a vanilla, buttery, oak taste that lingers. This is delicious.
Hine Rare VSOP Cognac
Joseph,
My first Cognac....a great way to start
Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal Cognac
Joseph,
My baseline Cognac. I compare all others to the 1738
