Tis the season, with Christmas being days away, the question is what do you get the man or men in your life who have always been there for you? Men as simple as we can be are very funny when it comes to gifts, we are too proud to tell the people we love that the gifts stinks, so we eat it and move on. But when we receive a great gift, there’s no hiding our excitement. There’s always a sure fire gift for the man who appreciates libations, and that a good drink. Something that says I care and I appreciate your hard work all year. A good cognac is always a good bet, and with Hennessy, this bet is as good as won.
