Hennessy VSOP Privilege Cognac
Sediment-free clarity. Assuredly complex. Flavors come together in a harmonious, sophisticated manner. Provides more than enough savory pleasure.
Camus Borderies XO Cognac
The depth of this initial aroma is fathomless and multilayered in the finest sense as mature fragrances of cigar box, cedar, mince pie, and allspice carry the day; a remarkably complex bouquet.
Clear Creek Distillery Pear Brandy
Aroma is so remarkably spot-on to Williams pear that it’s uncanny; fruity, delicate, crisp, softly ripe and juicy but not a whisper of sweetness; it is just plain pear-like. A perfect eau-de-vie.
Odessa VSOP Brandy
Flawlessly pure. Aromatic impressions are of toasted bread, leather, nectarine, and grape preserves. The pleasing bouquet opens up expressive scents. Gently sweet.
Asbach 8 Year Old Brandy
Lovely cocoa brown color. Impeccable clarity. Pleasing dried pear and dried apricot fragrances. Flavor is firm in structure, sophistication and balance.
Delord XO Bas-Armagnac
The maturity of the eau-de-vie is obvious right from the start. A wonderful example of Bas-Armagnac splendor when in the hands of a master distiller.
Courvoisier XO Cognac
Flawless purity. Understated quality; delicately sweet and ripe. The maturity of the eaux-de-vie brings elegance; evolves into the pleasing aftertaste.
Sainte Louise Brandy
Rich, burnt orange/mahogany color; excellent purity. The aroma opens up offering tantalizing, off-dry scents of lemon drop, orange blossom, almond, and clove. A phenomenal value.
Copper & Kings American Craft Brandy
Sediment-free and flawlessly pure featuring assertive and vivid fragrances. A brandy of substance and charm.
Torres 15 Imperial Reserva Privada Brandy
Flawless purity. Deft, elegant, yet substantial in its potency. Easily one of Spain’s top 4 or 5 brandies. Scrumptious.
Nonino Il Moscato di Monovitigno Grappa
Shimmering silver in its flawless transparent clarity. Remarkably earthy and vibrant aromas. Stunningly clean freshness. All of the citrusy splendor of moscato is captured.
Argonaut Speculator California Brandy
The aroma offers layers of orchard fruit ripeness, especially pear and green apple, as the opening fragrance shows an assertive juiciness that is immediately likeable. Features a full menu of taste charms.
