    It's Hennessy Paradis Imperial, and you're right, it's overpriced there by around $800-$1000. I'll stick with Louis XIII:

    The taxes on Louis XIII are over $800 in WA. The price of it has also gone up by a thousand dollars in recent years.

    Good thing my taste buds enjoy Remy Martin VSOP.

    Robin Williams once said "cocaine is God's way of telling you you're making too much money." I've always felt the same could be said about the Louis XIII cognac. Even the damn empty bottle (made from baccarat crystal if memory serves) is worth $300 or $400 I believe.

    If you're drinking Louis XIII on anything approaching a regular bssis, then yeah, you're probably making too much money.

    At that price point... you're probably not searching for nuances.

    I stick with Remy XO - however I'm not always sipping on cognac so a bottle lasts a while
