St-Remy XO Brandy is easily worth the $3.40 more you pay for it than the VSOP. no question. how is that even a difference, $3.40? one asks oneself “How could $3.40 possibly make a difference in taste?” but lo, it does!
i mean, this is just pig brandy, neither Cognac nor Armagnac (we’re talking $24.90 v.$21.50), so nothing fancy, but it does appear to be a case of getting marginally more than you pay for should you pay more. for….it?
for future reference, apparently
V = Very
S = Special
O = Old
P = Pale
X = eXtra
all very French sounding, no? so take it for what it’s worth, you know, with een korreltj zout.
and that is alls i know, among other things.
