There are many cognac brands on the market, however, although they all have a similar flavor they are not exactly the same. This is because some beverages of this type admit additions of oak fiber, macerations of futas, almonds and vanilla. Even some brands choose to darken their color with caramel.
Likewise, there are other brands that use fruits as the main ingredient to enrich and enhance the taste of the liquor. That is why we can find apple cognac, peach, among others.
