Cognac & Brandy –
Brandy is simply a type of alcohol distilled from either fermented fruit juice or wine.
We have a bottle of Hine, and although I have always loved it, and I still love it, I have found that I am a bourbon drinker. So, Hine is grape based, and bourbon is grain based. Hine, and cognac, is a very strong spirit but it is very smooth. Very balanced. Very complimentary. It isn’t likely that you will be offended by cognac, but you will be a little taken aback with its prowess.
It is definitely a gentleman’s drink, and I wouldn’t refuse it if it was offered to me. But I am not going out and buying bottles of it, either.
