About this deal

Nevertheless this brandy is produced in the south of France, blended and created by masterblender maitre de chai Jean-Sébastien Robicquet. Ciroc is not a Cognac brand in the true sense of the word, but rather a range of spirits created by Bordeaux based Master Distiller, Jean-Sebastian Robicquet.

On the finish, more of those traditional raisin flavors start appearing, but the lingering taste is burnt brown sugar and toffee. We can probably assume that this was distilled in the most efficient way possible (both for time and cost) and to the highest alcohol concentration they can get, which means a less flavorful spirit in the end. What I think happened is that these distilleries created an over-proof high alcohol spirit to maximize their revenue, which distilled out a lot of those lighter and more complex flavors. The fact that it is labeled as a “French brandy” (a blend of different distilled grape juices all combined together) seems like the perfect environment for the creation of a pretty mediocre spirit at best. The Buffalo Trace Distillery is the home of many famous Whiskey labels: Buffalo Trace, Blanton’s Single Barrel, George T.No matter the challenge, be it Mother Nature or man, the people of our Distillery have been part of the story that shaped America and the spirit industry as well. Crafted from fine French grapes and distilled in the south of France in traditional Alembic copper pot stills, our brandy offers unparalleled smoothness and elegance. That’s supported by a bit of brown sugar sweetness and some vanilla, with a hint of baking spices adding some welcome complexity. From the brand that defined luxury vodka comes a revolution in brown spirits: an ultra-premium fine French brandy. v=1669377411","options":["Size"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":32234591584569,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.

The dominant flavors of this flavor profile are rich, deep, and fruity — things like dried fruits and baking spices.

It’s a solid business decision — but also the reason why varieties like cognac and calvados have strict controls on their manufacturing process to prevent exactly this kind of situation.

For French brandy, grapes are grown and harvested pretty much the same way that they are in the wine production process. Depending on the region in France and the type of spirit being produced, this process can have some severely strict controls around it; however, since this is only labeled as a “French brandy”, none of those restrictions apply here.Drinking distilled spirits, beer, coolers, wine and other alcoholic beverages may increase cancer risk, and, during pregnancy, can cause birth defects.
