VS Brandy

Category: Dark Brandy

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 40%
Golden amber color. Sweet aromas of popovers with honey butter, bubblegum, strawberry jam, green apple, sweet tea, and caramel with a velvety, vibrant, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length pistachio gelato, french vanilla, raspberry macaron, and peppercorns finish. A candied and somewhat spicy dark brandy that will play well in cocktails.

Grape Brandy is Brandy distilled from fermented grape juice or crushed but not pressed grape pulp and skin. This spirit is aged in wooden casks (usually oak) which colors it, mellows the palate, and adds additional aromas and flavors.
