Awards for Courvoisier VS
Also from Courvoisier Distillery
Courvoisier proudly boast their Cognac as that of Napoleon. It all started when Napoleon took hundreds of bottles of Courvoisier Cognac for his years of exile. Napoleon told Emmanuel Courvoisier that whilst he could be given the Hennessy or the Cristal, or indeed the Remy, it was the Courvoisier he really wanted.
One of a kind
For the petrol head...
This is possibly the only VS cognac that is still enjoyable when drank neat. Others are just good mixers at best.

It's not too bad a taste (though I'm not much of a cognac drinker), but it has a horrible smell of petrol. If you can avoid smelling the stuff, then drink away.
I should clarify that this petrol smell is only present when taking a large sniff. A smaller sniff gives a general, fruity, cognac smell. I'd say that you should choose whether or not to buy this based on the size of your sniff...
