HENNESSY VSOP
LCBO      43703      750 mL bottle

Spirits, Brandy, Cognac
40.0% Alcohol/Vol.

Made in: France - Other, France
By: JAS. HENNESSY & CO.

Tasting Note
Golden amber colour; caramel aromas; touch of orange chocolate on the palate, smooth with warm finish

Serving Suggestion
Savour after dinner

It's a cheap brand at $70 for 700ml (CAD if you're wondering) and thats about all I want to spend on alcohol, I got a super low tolerance cause I haven't really drank much since I had a close encounter with alcohol poisoning last february, only got drunk 3 times since then, all of beer. So it should last me awhile the next up is a $185 and this is what they say about it

Tasting Note
Medium amber colour; orange rind, butterscotch aromas with hints of vanilla and plums; rich and flavourful on the palate. Long finish

The cheaper one sounds good cause I don't like butterscotch and plums too much and I love a warm finish.

Get the VS.

It's gonna be a lot cheaper, and unless you are a big Cognac fan you won't really notice the difference IMO.

The VSOP comes in a nice little box tho so if you wanna show it off then get that I guess.

You could always get a half pint of both first (although I dunno if they sell 1/2 pints of the vsop). See which one you like the best and it won't break the bank.

The VS is only $50.00 Canadian, and it comes with a box too  ;D.  (That's the one all the rappers drink  ;))  Like, Englewood said, if you're not a conisseur of congnac's, don't even bother.

Like dude said, if you're not a cognac drinker don't just get something for the name or you won't appreciate it.

Personally I drink the VS, its cheap and very pleasant. VSOP I've had a couple times, still wanna try the XO and the even betters. They also do one called Fine de Cognac which is cheaper than VS but harder to find, its not that great, kinda weak, but you might like it.

Or try the Remy Martin VSOP, they do that for around the same price as the Henny VS usually.

It's all just Brandy anyway.  Trust me, just get the VS.  It's the best bang for your buck.

Get the VS. I honestly believe it tastes a lot better. (Not the case on most other cognacs though.) Of course there's XO too, if you got the cash, but it's a bit too fancy to just get drunk on. But it tastes gooooood. I sometimes have a drink of that in da club or something, but usually I stick to the VS. Unless, of course, I go with vodka or scotch or beer or tequila or...
