Clear golden amber color. Funky, toasty aromas and flavors of caramelized peaches and apples, spiced almond praline, lilac and lily, and pastry with a lightly tannic, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, stimulating, medium-length finish that exhibits overtones of spiced pecans and trail mix, pencil shavings, tobacco, and pepper finish. A warming apple brandy with a hefty dose of oak that gives a whiskey-like impression.

Fruit Brandy is the default term for all Brandies that are made from fermenting fruit other than grapes. Fruit Brandies, except those made from berries, are generally distilled from fruit wines. Berries tend to lack enough sugar to make a wine with sufficient alcohol for proper distillation, and thus are soaked (macerated) in high-proof spirit to extract their flavor and aroma. The extract is then distilled once at a low proof.
