Dull gold color. Aromas and flavors of tea, ginseng, spumoni, green apple, and melon soda with a supple, bright, dry light body and a sleek, short finish evoking overtones of Payday bar finish. A distinctive mash-up of flavors makes this a curious spirit to mix with sodas and juices.

Everything else is flavored these days, so why not brandies? There products are made in several countries, including France and the US; flavors include apricot, cassis, orange and honey; dryness levels vary. Quality and complexity are impressive; these products are meant for exotic cocktails.
