Interesting enough, that Martell is only mentioned 5% and Courvoisier is not mentioned once! Still, they make up (together with Remy & Hennessy) over 80% of the worldwide market.

Thanks a lot to all participants! Here are some quotes from different readers:

  • “You can get a miniature 50ml of Louis XIII complete with red leather presentation case, which costs about the same as the same volume in a good restaurant or bar in UK.”
  • “LOUIS XIII hands down. I have had two glasses in my life. Hennessy private reserve 1864 runs a close second in my book”
  • “Hennessy Privlage or XO is extremely smooth. Hennessy Black is Horrible in my opinion. I’ll drink Vs b4 I drink Black”
  • “Delamain’s Pale & Dry — and I defy you to find better for the price range.”
  • “Church on the Pure White!!!”

    My wife said the sample size is so limited, not that suited to use quantitative research…
