Copper & Kings A Song For You
Copper & Kings // Kentucky, USA
The_RevTastedCopper and Kings is a brand that intrigues me. It takes some chutzpah to set up shop in Kentucky to distill *brandy* (and gin). To their credit, they do it well, and this limited release offering is a credit to their skillfulness. The nose is impressive - aged notes of leather and old wood play off of hints of apple, peppermint, white pepper, cardamom, and galangal, in way that suggests a dry character...expressive, but this is not a ripe sort of affair. The palate is round and coating, rich without being heavy, and true to the nose, it’s a dry, wood-forward profile marked by apples and mint at the forefront, with spices and dry leather and wood closing things out. A unique brandy, worth seeking out, and a good counterpoint to the assertion that brandy has to be sweet or fruit-dominated.
Yep, it’s still great.
I’m very new to brandy but find this to be an outstanding pour. Smooth and velvet feel.... slightly sweet going down with little burn. Was lucky enough to get a private tour in Louisville and was very impressed with their various barrel finishes. Give them a try!! And grab this version of DNA1 if you can find it.
