The brandy and the cognac give the allowance for an eventful taste too, by giving license to a genre of the tulip. Having a customized tulip would also add a glamorous extravaganza to a party of the cognac. What makes the tulip a fitting choice? The balloon shape, of course. Traditionally, a brandy or a cognac should fill its glass to the largest part of its balloon cheek. This traps the flavour and the aroma of the brandy or cognac in the glass around the part, and the narrowing of the glass above the widest walls ensures that. Gradually, as brandy or cognac is sipped over time, the neck of a tulip bell collects. The mouth of the bell that opens outward allows the nose to savour the aroma of the brandy or cognac. This is because the nose is directly pointed into the centre of the glass when the glass is brought to find refuge in the inner of the lips. Who does not know that the blend of the flavour and aroma, in the end, is the divinity present with a cognac glass? The tulip offers that same beauty.
