Normann Copenhagen Cognac Glasses

Cognac Fans favorite Cognac Design glass comes from Normann Copenhagen, we even used a picture of it in our header above!
The design of the glass is beautiful, it is also fascinating to see the glass could spin like a top. As for glass to drink, I find it somewhat less suitable for brandy.

François Voyer XO Grand Cru

A few years ago I described the François Voyer XO Gold as one of the best XO Cognacs. This XO Grand Cru is the slightly younger, about 5 years, brother of this XO Gold.
The name of Grand Cru revers to the Grande Champagne, Voyer uses for all of their Cognacs, as Grande Champagne is the Grand Cru of the Cognac region.
The decanter is a beauty, which suits very well in your drinking cabinet…

Hennessy “9.Shoot”

In 2004 Hennessy created the 9.shoot project, an box with 9 stylish missile-like bottles of Hennessy Cognac, the bottom of these awesome bottles could be used as a Cognac Glass.
Unfortunately this project didn’t become publicly well known, so probably Hennessy decided not to produce it.
In search on the internet, I found the website of Jerome Blanchard with beautiful pictures of this special project and couldn’t resist to share it with our Cognac-Friends! Hope you like it…

Warming a Cognac in the Glass?

It is widely believed that it is correct to warm the Cognac contained in a balloon glass in the hollow of the hand. There is even an element of snobbery attaching to the procedure.
Professional tasters, while allowing everyone to drink his Brandy as he pleases, disapprove strongly this method.
It has, indeed, one serious disadvantage: the more superior it’s quality, the more strongly does the warmed brandy give off a powerful aroma which induces a real anesthesia of the faculties of taste and smell.

Everybody once tried to make music on their Cristal glasses, unfortunately we weren’t so good in doing this, therefore we decided to focus on the contents of the glass, the great Cognacs or wines…
