Favorite So Far
My first ever order from Cognac Expert was an Armagnac, and what a great way to start! This was a truly delicious bottle, and a great value. The palate (of highest importance to me, personally) was very rich. Nothing but praise - I will surely order this again.
Bought as a present for my wife for Christmas - in her view it is the smoothest armagnac that she has had, vanilla and caramel with a lasting finish, and a "proper" nose. Packaging made the present extra special, and all in all great value for money.
