Cohiba Extra Cognac from Martell

Cigar Cognacs are great Cognacs to pair with Cigars, especially the heavier ones from Cuba,  these Cognacs are somewhat spicier and stronger in taste, so they do not disappear in terms of taste when paired with a heavy aromatic cigar.
Cohiba was back in 1999 one of the first, with the idea to make a special cigar spirit. They collaborate for some time with Bisquit, but after Bisquit was bought by Martell, it decided to bring the Bisquit Cohiba under the Martell label.

Camus Ile de Ré – Cliffside Cellar

The Camus Ile de Re series is a great success! Because of this success, the Ile de Ré XO is adjusted so it can better be described as a Ile de Ré Cognac.
Ile de Ré is a small island off the coast of the Cognac region, which is also a part of the Cognac region,  Cognacs from this island are because of the sea influences, saltier and more maritime than Cognacs from the mainland.  It is good to have these differences within the Cognac-region!
