How to enjoy Cognac ?

Often considered exclusively as an after dinner drink in Europe, Cognac is in fact drunk with water during the meals in Asia. Connoisseurs also insist on the properties of Cognac as an aperitif, over ice or as a cocktail, or as a great winter warmer.
 
Nature
At the end of a good meal, take your time and apreciate a good cognac served in a 'tulipe' glass. 
Prefer VSOP and XOs for nature tasting.
To profit of this special moment, look at our advises about Tasting
 
Long Drink
Cognac long drink mixed with gas water or tonic will refresh you as an aperitif. 
Prefer VS young cognacs which are more floral for coktails and long drinks.
Cognac drunk as a long drink helps the olfactive perception because water reduces the strenght due to alcohol.
