I have a passion and love for all spirits, but particularly world brandy and world whisk(e)y. The great people at Cognac-Expert have greatly increased my exposure to not only more Cognac, but smaller producers who are doing phenomenal things!! Love you all!! Cheers!!

French wine, and the concept of terroir, captured my interest early on. Naturally, curiosity took me to spirits, in particular Cognac. Today I'm proud to be a member of the Cognac Expert team managing B2B projects, working on Cognac Expert Originals, and writing bottle reviews for the English Blog. I love to taste anything and everything - rum/rhum, whisky(ey), Armagnac, etc. - but no other spirit grabs my attention quite like Cognac, and all of its subtleties and nuance. Santé !

After exploring r(h)ums and whisk(e)y I finally got into Armagnac and Cognac. I am happy to be able to continue this interesting journey.

Cognac that suits my taste very well
The first time I drank this XO was in Australia in 2018, which is still fresh in my memory. When I bought this new batch of XO again, I felt that it was better than before. When I opened this cognac in southern China, the first thing I saw was a strong aroma of flowers and fruits, followed by chocolate,...
Quality Decent Napoleon for a Cigar or Straight Connoisseur Enjoyers

What I can say about this beautiful Napoleon Cigar blend - Very full-bodied product a real rival to well-known Napoleon by Courvosier. Although it's 46% strong, it doesn't...
