Pretty Darn Good
I have been a fan of this cognac house since the 1980's when it was called Marcel Ragnaud. The new proprietor has altered the formulas, aging times and names to make it his own brand. I have tried several of the other Ragnaud Sabourin that have left me unimpressed - mostly on the value front; too expensive for the taste and experience. This one is a good value and pleasing from nose to finish. A particularly long and pleasing finish.
