Best Buy
Copper color. Aromas and flavors of marzipan, candied pecans, spiced and poached pear, cherry cola and raisin toast, and cedar saw dust with a crisp, dry medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish conveying touches of poached pear, cinnamon bun, and melted caramel. With rich orchard fruits alongside some barrel spice and balance, this would be excellent for most traditional Brandy cocktails.

Aromas and flavors of chocolate ganache and cigar ash, honey comb, basswood honey, brandied cherries, and orange marmalade with a round, bright, dry medium-to-full body and a delightful, medium-length finish conveying notes of caramel apple, leather, mocha, and grilled chocolate covered pineapple.
