As I noted in the post, I linked that photo from Wikipedia to show the right glassware for cognac sipping. But now that I have more time to take my own photo, I think mine is "purtier". I mean the glass, not my hand in the following photo.
Actually, I was talking about the color of the cognac LOL! I didn't even notice the glass.

Hmmmmm - my bottle of Marsala may be older than that!

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

Then, I should have poured out a shot of my XO to show in the photo how it had a rich and darker color than that in the Wikipedia photo. Yeah, my Cognac is better than his Cognac, whoever that photo poster is.

And then, I remember that Cognac makers are allowed to use caramel for color enhancement. Surely, Remy Martin does not do that. Or do they?

I suspect Baileys would outlast a Twinkie, but I'm not sure that I'd survive the research.
As a ER project, I will start this important test in the name of science!
Thanks for the helpful encouragement. I will go have some now.

Usually the only time I throw out alcohol is the same night I've had too much to drink. But, it's usually just foam.

I only have about 1 drink a week, but with 15-18 college student employees anything I want to get rid of goes to a good home.
