Copper color. Aromas of cocoa powder, caramel cream, baklava, and Payday bar with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, intricate, medium-long raisins, dried figs, spiced molasses cake, and cappuccino finish. Dreamy oak shines in this sippable Brandy.

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.
