A true "blind" tastingThis Cognac tasting is really different. You put on a blindfold and they waft scents into the room that can be found in the Cognac - vanilla, floral, citrus peel. After inhaling each scent, you try to discern it in in the glass of Cognac. The blindfold supposedly helps you concentrate. Held in a chic private room at the Corvoisier chateau, it has a touch of an "Eyes Wide Shut" experience. The Cognac - their $100/bottle XO - was excellent.
