Smooth, Very Drinkable, Great Value and Quite Drinkable Neat
A friend introduced me to this "brandy" and he's somewhat of a connoisseur of brandies and "cognacs" and he explained that it is imported through a state with low import duties, hence the relatively low price. Also, as you all must know better than I, Cognac is simply a town/region in France so they can call their brandies Cognacs. A brief aside, V.S. is Very Special, XO is Extra Old and V.S.O.P is Very Special Old Pale. At present that means that the age of the youngest brandy used in the blending is 2 or 4 or 6 years old a minimum to VS, XO, or VSOP respectively (or is it vs, vsop and xo?). However most good houses use somewhat to considerably more aged brandies in the blending and aging.  I read somewhere that in 2016 either the vsop or xo or both may require longer minimum aging to bear the VSOP OR XO title. I don't know a whole lot, but I think I'm fairly accurate about that. Oh, about the review... sorry for the circumlocution... I think this is an excellent brandy/cognac for the money. I agree with my friend and those who have posted about it here and elsewhere that it is very smooth. I get a fairly sweet taste, but not objectionably so, and some fruit and perhaps mild hints of sweet spice. I don't think most think it's very complex, but for the money it's more than good enough for me and, again, very smooth. I don't think any brandy/cognac drinker would have any trouble drinking this fine beverage neat. That's my $.02 and thanks for reading this. (You did get this far, didn't you?) :)

This is the most popular imported Brandy sold in the US and for good reason. It is excellent, and a great value. Very smooth, with just a tinge of sweetness. For just a couple of dollars more, I think Raynal is better than Christian Bros VSOP which I rate as the best domestic brandy.
