This stuff runs through my veins on a good night! "Hennessy" What is it about this brown tinted liquid? I have friends who would swear the Devil himself lives in this bottle for the way it alters you mind state, but then we don't sip it we "Back it", "What"? I hear you ask! The art of backing is quite simple, you quarter or half fill a tumbler with Hennessy, chase it with some Alize or Champagne or both, Coke will do also, & then down it in one go ... then you start again till the bottles done, a £20.00 bottle will do & I'd suggest you do it with 2 to 5 people in total so you don't become a casualty! Back to the drink! This stuff is like an aphrodisiac, it'll also bring the party out of the most quiet of people or even stimulate your conversations to an even deeper level. The other good thing about Henny is the fact that you can purchase a the Very Special brand at approx. £25.00 & notice a subtle smoothness straight away, not as smooth as the XO brand but more than a quarter of the way there & just a quarter of the price. When you go up in price that's also when you stop chasing as that is just a sin (I've even seen a bottle for £2,000 called "Timeless"), you need to savour the smoothness & sweet aroma, if you have a cognac glass, swirl it & watch how long it takes for the sweet liquid to run back down the inside of the glass ... you'll have to be patient! I'm not sure if there's much more I can say about this juice other than it also has it's medicinal uses, try some with a little orange juice if you feel the flu setting on ... Mmmmm! I hope your taste buds are curious, I'm sure you won't be disappointed! Many will argue that Lager is a "mans" drink or Cognac is for "birds" but I beg to differ, get cultured & treat your palate to a spirit with a difference. Thuggg
First I'd better state that i'm not an alcoholic but I certainly could be with this stuff. It's absolutely top class. It has a real nice taste and unlike some brandies i've had before it isn't too sweet. I got my bottle of it in Germany so didn't pay £22+ for it but I have to say it's worth every penny. Don't even think about buying another brand, you'll just be disappointed. Hennessy is the best but don't drink too much. I am a regular drinker of it anf bought a bottle last week and it's now finished.
