Unafraid of standing out, this brandy offers fruity notes of pear and  apple along with  a rich palate of raisin, prune and subtle matured wood notes, drizzled with sweet vanilla and honey for a perfect aftertaste– all of which come alive when consumed neat, on ice or with a mixer, making it the perfect choice for the occasion.
