Cognac and a great cigar make a fine pair. It’s worth noting that Cohiba released a similar spirit with Bisquit back in 2005. Good things come to those who wait though, right? Cohiba Cognac by Martell ($622) is made from top of the line eaux-de-vie (a.k.a fruit brandy) that’s been aged between 40 and 50 years in oak casks. That means it’s had plenty of time to infuse with rich oak accents and develop a deep amber hue. At 43% ABV, it’s also the ideal amount of alcohol to sip while puffing away. In tribute to the Cohiba connection, the bottle is distinguished by a silk-screen print of a traditional Cuban tobacco field. A special wooden box is part of the package as well — though sadly it’s not a humidor.
