Category: Dark Brandy

Date Tasted:
Country: France
Alcohol: 42.7%
Brilliant amber color. Aromas and flavors of leather bound cedar cigar box, peach-mango chutney, cracked peppercorns, nutmeg, and allspice, and fruitcake with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish revealing notes of oak and tobacco, brown spices, honey cream, and minerals and earth finish. A robust, spicy, very oak-influenced brandy for contemplative sipping or cigars.

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.
