    Produced 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.

Tasting Notes

"Stewed apples generously doused in baking spices are offered on the nose, along with warming mulled wine. The palate showcases freshly sliced apples with kirsch—cherry eau-de-vie—vanilla, dry oak, and sandalwood. The finish showcases more cherries along with milk chocolate, expressed orange peels, and honey-drizzled apples. "
