Not a whisky but I tried some cognac today - Hennessy XO. Coming from whisky, cognac is weird. It’s grape based rather than grain and is therefore comparatively fruity. Completely difference process in making it.... nothing like whisky in that regard but as children we all saw these drinks in grandma’s cabinet and bundled them together in our minds Christmas pudding is exactly what I’d describe it to be like. No doubt because of the ‘brandy’ sauce. Was a little woody. A pleasant sipper. Don’t have too much more to say - don’t think I’ll be plumping for a bottle of cognac anytime soon, as it very much felt like an ‘acquires taste’ at this moment and I’m not sure how much I liked it.
