I just got a gift of a bottle of Alize cognac.

I like Remy-Martin, Hennessey os passable, and so is Couvoisier.

Is this Alize any good, or should I just palm it off to a certain alcoholic relative come Christmas?

Alize? Isn't that that fruity drink? I dont know they made cognac too.

Funny you should ask...
I'm not normally a Cognac drinker - but I'm out of Cabernet, Gin, and Stout, so I'm sipping a bit of Courvoisier that I keep for guests who drink this stuff!
Another aquired taste!!!!!

Arent Cognac and Brandy the same thing or related in some way?

I love Cognac. Definately something I tend to drink in cooler weather and if it is less than $20 a bottle it is usually swill.

Remy and Courvosier are good. Don't know anything abouty Alize (ali-zay) but my wife, who used to be a wine merchant says it is WONDERFULL!

Brandy=cognac that is made outside of France. Same stuff. It's wine that has been passed through a still.

You'd be surprised how good of a brandy that you can make out of Mad Dog.Fruity and packing a PUNCH!

Drank Cognac once. Got sick as hell. I have been better off from MD 20/20 Gibleys vodka or Kessler.

I will not touch cognac.

Seems to be drinkable. About $21, same as the VS versions of Remy and Courvoisier.

Drank some brandy made from that Red Chill crap box wine. It was better than anything I have bought. And yes, I do splurge once in a while.
