Amber color. Aromas and flavors of brandy-soaked raisins, prunes, fruit cake, and honeycomb with a satiny, crisp, dryish medium body and a peppery, medium-length finish with impressions of cracked pepper. A fruity, peppery option for curious Cognac drinkers; a tasty cocktail modifier that will offer a spin on the classics.

Specialty Spirit or Distilled Spirits Specialty is a catchall category for other spirits that don't fit into other categories. According to the US TTB they are 'generally, any class and/or type of distilled spirits that contain or are treated with flavoring and/or coloring materials and/or nonstandard blending or treating materials or processes.' Examples include both domestic and international spirits that are flavored during and by distillation, versus post-distillation flavoring.
