Duke Ellington Cognac
We don't pay a lot of attention to cognac here, but don't think that's a snub against the noble drink...until now there just hasn't been one that's caught our interest the way Duke Ellington Cognac does. Named for the legendary music man, the cognac is a 20 year old XO blend (that's cognac for top of the line and while it doesn't exactly mean "extra old," it could). It might sound a bit steep at $150 per 750ml bottle, but it's not out of line when you consider how high end the liquor is rumored to be. No word yet on tasting notes yet but we'll let you know as soon as we try it - we hope it tastes jazzy.
Until it gets a wide release, you can use the following contact information to find out more/try to get your hands on a bottle:
