One talks about it first!!

PhiloDex-Consult-AttitudeDo you know what you are talking about?

Edward VII, at the time when he was still The Prince of Wales, was subject to a protest when he was about to swallow the old cognac that had just been served to him:

– “Your highness! such a nectar! One must first let the amber blonds play around in the crystal.
– Then one breathes it gently in, religiously.

Then at last…

– One drinks it!
– No your highness, not yet… one talks about it!”

Is Champagne just sparkling wine? Or is Cognac just brandy? – As well as Espresso is merely coffee?!
