"No wallflower, this one. The intensity of the bouquet starts right with the pour as waves of prunes and raisins rise from the glass; air contact stirs deeper aromas, most notably orange rind, peppermint and roasted nuts. This rich, heavyweight brandy features layers of flavor, including cocoa, toffee, caramel, cream Sherry and oaky vanilla. Finishes as large and robust as it started." —P.P., Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Deep mahogany hue. Rich, sweet coffee, spice, and chocolate aromas leads to a oily, fruity sweet full-bodied palate with dried tropical fruits, mocha, roasted nuts, salt, and rancioed oloroso sherry notes. Finishes a lengthy, slightly tart, spicy, molasses and wood note fade. A complex and lavish Spanish brandy." —Beverage Testing Institute

This is no joke, if it's your first time tasting a brandy or Congac for that matter I'd recommend B&B (which is my everyday brandy) this is a pro brandy and if your just getting into it the powers that come out will overwhelming ruin your pallet you won't be able to appericate. THIS Is A CONNESSURES Brandy Who Likes A GLASD Once A Week Warmed JN A Special Brandy warner. The angles share wasnt even lost its that stout. Not for a beginner,if it's your first time ever trying real brandy than chances are you'll want to toss it, it took me a glass or 3 just to get all the tastes that are so powerful in this elixir. It's truly a pro brandy only.  Do yourself a favor a don't jump in feet first, start with a congac, than B&B maybe and than make the light speed taste complexity jump before you make this your first tasting.  The Bullman

"The color is an elegant golden straw yellow with amber highlights. Its aromas are radiant, revealing bright yellow-fleshed fruits (apple, pear, yellow peach), honey, floral nuances (lime blossom) and elegant blond notes (brioche and fresh nuts). The palate is seductive, richly flavorful and smooth combining generosity and subtlety, fullness and vigor, followed by a delicately fresh crispiness (fruit with seeds), to reveal the magical balance of Champagne." —winemaker
