    Cognac

    к = "K" as in "kick" or the "hard" C as in "cough"
    о = "O" as in "oh"
    н = "N" (I still type the wrong letter half the time )
    ь = designates a "soft sign" or softening of the preceding letter
    я = "ya" It's also the pronoun for "I"

    коньяк

    As long as we're somewhat on the subject...

    водка = vodka and is pronounced the same in both languages

    I can't figure out what the other word on the bottle is, but you might be able to figure it out with the alphabet page: http://listen2russian.com/lesson01/a/index.html

    and/or copying the letters from the alphabet page into google translate:

    As often as we refer to grabbing a glass of wine, I don't truthfully have one that often. But tonight I am very upset with my BO, just drove past my barn to see if all was well, and then hit the fridge, grabbing an "unmentionable" tacky cheap wine - even though I have a bottle of the above available. Better save it for guests...

    But the cheese & crackers are to die for...
