Dark amber color. Aromas of chai latte, cinnamon-spiced cashews, gingerbread, milk chocolate, and spiced bananas foster with a round, lively, fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, stimulating, medium-to-long cola and whipped cream finish.

Flavored Brandy Liqueur

Flavored Brandy Liqueurs are liqueurs using either Cognac or Brandy as a base and flavored mostly commonly with orange–like in the most famous example, Grand Marnier–or other flavorings such as vanilla or coffee and then sweetened with sugar. These should not be confused with Fruit-Flavored Brandies, which are grape Brandies that have been flavored with the extract of another fruit and are much drier.
