Cognac and Armagnac have essentially the same flavor.
Answer: False.Cognac and Armagnac are both brandies made in their respective villages in the southwest of France. Both are made mainly from ugni blanc grapes, and both are distilled to create the brandies. There are however differences in the way the two brandies taste. Cognac tends to be more floral, grapey and fragrant with a good bite of alcohol in the finish. Armagnacs are fuller bodied with more pruney, dried fruit character.
