Soon it’s November and it is getting cold outside. At least in France. And Christmas and New Years is building up. This is why we came up with a Top 7 list for winter cognacs: For the end of 2011 and of course the beginning of 2012. This articles is not yet our New Years and Christmas list with present ideas or highly rare and expensive cognacs – that one is still to come.
The price range of this list is from € 20 to € 100, so if you would like to buy a “winter-cognac” for New Years or Christmas then have a look at some rather sweet and caramel-driven cognacs.
In winter we like rather sweeter things such as cookies, a good rum with sugar and milk and all kind of things.
