I always learn something new from the Asian Age. This weekend it was about a mysterious drink, just launched in India, called Armagnac.
Fact 1: Apparently, Armagnac is to Cognac as rum is to whiskey (i.e. they are nothing alike? they are made from two different substances? they both contain alcohol? they are both brown, except when one of them is white?)
Fact 2: Either Armagnac or Cognac is aged for years in oak caskets (now I don't care how they're related--all I know is I ain't drinking the one mixed with corpse juice).
