This is an excellent cognac for the price. I can't give it a 5 as it is not Remy. But it is smoothe and a VSOP.

Maison Rouge Cognac VSOP 750ML, France
First nosing passes pick up delicate scents of apple, grape and pear. Palate entry is mellow, rounded and mildly spiced; by midpalate, the taste gains in scope as the flavor of the wood underpins the fruitiness. Ends firmly and with an unexpected oiliness that works in its favor.--Winemag.com
This is nineteen bucks. It tastes like twice that. If you drink a lot of cognac, like I do, this is an obvious choice and a clear price/performance leader.
Full bodied, smooth, complex. Excellent value for the money. Not worth getting the VS which is much harsher and less complex.
I love this cognac. My taste buds may not be as good as they once were at age 80 but I can't tell the difference between this and cognac costing more than twice as much, in fact I prefer it to a famous VSOP costing about $45.00.
