Courvoisier XO Imperial

Courvoisier XO Imperial is a very aromatic cognac with orange, vanilla and Creme Brulee.
Compared with the Remy Martin XO this cognac is slightly less complex, this cognac is less earthy and masculine in comparison to the taste of the Hennessy XO. The Courvoisier XO, is a good average between the two.

Meukow Xpresso – Liqueur Cafe and Cognac Review

Some months ago we reported about the Meukow Xpresso, a liqueur made of Meukow VS Cognac and natural coffee aromas. Now we are able to tell you our opinion about this drink.
In contrast to the normal Meukow Cognacs this liqueur is bottled at 22% abv, which is much less than the 40% minimum of Cognac.

Léopold Raffin – Napoleon

I did never taste Léopold Raffin Cognac before, so let’s kick of with their Napoleon! Léopold Raffin was established in 1889, by it’s name-giver  “Leopold Raffin”, for more than 120 years Leopold Raffin stands for great passion and quality from this mid-sized family house.
