Okay folks, I know Hennessey makes a decent cognac, but what I'm looking for is a good cognac, something that you don't mind sittin back with a few of your good friends over a couple of good Havana's, prices isn't any problem and I realize you get what you pay for, some of them are real decent, good cognac.

Courvoisier and Remy Martin are both good cognacs.

Hennessey has a vsop, it's a little smoother, also Martell.

Default Educate yourself!

There are probably several awesome cognacs available in your area.

First off I would like to thank,"ontheroad","LaceyEx",and "mr.man" for your response to my question,I do appreciate your input,however,to the individual above,I think it is pretty presumptuous of you to assume that you know about an individual's palate and as to whether they would appreciate something or not strictly by geographical location.First let me explain,although in your case I do not find an entirely necessary to have to do so,but I will anyway,I am a member of one of the most exclusive smokers clubs in Washington, DC and the members of this club have reached the pinnacle in both business and politics,and our pallets are of the utmost excellence,we appreciate fine liquorsr's and cigars.I do not feel it necessary nor do I have the patience to have to impress anybody,I am the Patriarch of a very influential family and business in the metropolitan Washington, DC area,and this company has been in business for over 60 years,so when you decide to reach the level of business that I have, you may be invited to join such a club,but in the meantime do not make such assumptions about something of which you know nothing of.Now if you'll excuse me,I will be joining my fellow members with my personal 1.75L magnum of Re'my Martin's Louis XIII Cognac and a box of Montecristo A,Vintage 96 Cuban cigars.

At this point I do not feel that it is necessary to carry this conversation any further. I thank those who participated and contributed some useful information. Thank you.

Perhaps your fellow members can advise you as to the rules of grammar, punctuation and spelling.

If this is the best that you can do in your response,then you have accomplished nothing, because you are completely off-topic,and that's what I hire people like you to do.Good evening.

Hi, I'm actually going to go visit Cognac - France in September. Have wanted to go there for years and finally booked. I have been told to try armagnac by various Cognac lovers, but that is also harder to find,... maybe if you can find a bottle you can let me know what you thought about it. By the way, love a good cigar as well
