Yes, it’s a brandy, in fact a Cognac - in all its pure naked glory. Sick of the light weight, caramel dosed commercial version of this spirit? I most certainly am, and when I tried this, it just knocked me over!!
It's aromatic, spicy, highly intriguing, the alcohol is racy and it's a touch rustic. But it is so fabulously splendid. And no caramel to dull the senses and at cask strength too!
In their words, "Nose: Sweet; oily; orange peel; rich fruits; plums.Palate: Parma violets; orange zest; marzipan; fruity; dry sweetness towards the end." As one tasted loudly stated, "This is the brandy for whisky drinkers."
