    April 1, 2021 - Molasses, burnt caramel and valerian on the nose. Valerian extract, molasses and caramel on the palate, syrupy. I guess it’s the valerian note that arose the ire of “sweetstuff” below. And honestly I concur, am amused by the entirely appropriate medicinal metaphor of "St. Bernard in the alpine passes for reviving the half-frozen" and don’t really see the point of this product. Yet the offer came with nice brandy glasses, so I am glad I bought it, but certainly won’t again. I am now going to open its big brother, hoping for more success.

    Oak used here to give a more mellow, chocholate/charamel feel to the brandy as the outright ones ( like the Carlos I we tried along) are too sharp. Still quite a bit of alcohol on the nose and felt as if they heated the brandy up. Not an interesting one to be honest. low 80s if we had to rate

    November 24, 2016 - I did not care for this at all. In your face caramel, more like a liqueur than a brandy. No finesse to speak of. It was OK just for a sip or two, then I got tired of it. A waste of money to get a whole bottle, sample before you buy.

    February 11, 2016 - Tasted from a just opened bottle. Just slightly sweet, nevertheless opulent, full bodied and very Long. Loads of dried fruits, a beautiful sherry note, burned sugar and just a hint of caramel. 42% alcohol gives it the right Punch. Great Brandy.
