I got some cognac. Actually, I was given a bottle of Courvoisier Cognac from someone who was cleaning house, came across the unopened bottle, did not want it, and consequently gave it to me. It appears to be an old bottle based on the yellowing of the large paper label and the tax stamp, and also as indicated by a smaller label on the neck of which the adhesive had lost its full effect. It would appear from the numbers embossed on the bottom of the glass bottle that this particular cognac was bottled in 1986.
In researching the topic of cognac on the internet, I came across some websites, in addition to the ones embedded in the opening paragraph, that you might want to explore. One is a blog entitled Cognac; another website is Cognac Expert that also has a blog; and, a third website is Cognac Fans. And for those of you who prefer to mix things up rather than staying neat or straight up, you can check out Courvoisier Cognac at Drink Nation.
