Disclaimer: I am a Cognac Rookie.
A generous friend with a very extensive home bar suggested I take a sip of Louis XIII Cognac. I read the little booklet that came with it & admired the red satin lined, gold decorated box. It was the 2000 commemorative edition.
I swirled & sniffed. It smelled very strong. I tasted. It was... not what I expected. Since I'm a cognac rookie I'm sure I'm missing out on all the nuances of flavor, ect. Maybe I need to toughen up my tastebuds and try more cognacs other than RM XO & Hennessy.
Is Louis XIII supposed to be "delicious"? What is the best way to enjoy cognac in general? Cognac afficionados please help. TIA!
