American BrandyProduced in the US, this is usually referring to brandy distilled from grape-based wine. If the producer uses other fruit, it must be stated on the label. If aged under two years in oak, it must state the word "immature" on the label. Beyond that, labels such as VS, VSOP, and XO mean little as the brands themselves dictate what that means to them.

"Notes of vanilla, pear, and jasmine float up on the aroma of Cedar Ridge Pear Brandy. Sweet on the palate, it offers rich flavors of pear backed by sweet vanilla developed from its time in barrel. It's a flavorful brandy that seems just right for autumn or any time the mood strikes."
