At $180 a bottle, this better be good!
After years of drinking the most inexpensive liquors available, I found myself curious as to the rationale of individuals buying these opulent liquors that cost exuberant amounts of money. Enjoying a bit more disposable income than before, I delved into the world of Cognacs.
Beginning my journey, I did my due diligence and committed to learning a plethora of information about the French whiskey. Eventually, I found myself purchasing, from Costco, a bottle of Remy Martin XO (XO standing for extra old), and I learned what the combination of over 100 different eaux-de-vie tastes like.
Nothing has compared to the airy aromas and subtle flavors of a beautifully aged Cognac. Although it may not be for everyone, I found that sharing a fine liquor is the best way to enjoy it because you can discuss the various subtle flavors that this drink contains.
Many may ridicule the purchase of an expensive spirit such as Remy Martin XO, but it is important to try these types of experiences first-hand before making a judgment.
In order to speak from experience, spend a little extra and try an opulent spirit soon!
