Description

Osocalis Rare Alambic Brandy

The Rare Alambic brandy is blended from brandies distilled from several varietal with emphasis on Pinot Noir, Semillon and Colombard. The Rare is blended to show the richness, fruit and floral qualities of California Alambic Brandies and the base of the more precocious Pinot Noir provides a strong, youthful platform on which to ground the blend. The Blend consists mostly of youthful brandies of ~6 years in barrel but also includes older stocks to add finesse and structure. The latest bottling, Lot V, is our best Rare Alambic yet. K&L Wine called this their Spirit of the Month: "...If you buy only one new spirit for this New Year, make it Osocalis brandy!"

Tasting Notes

This is what you get when you take the sensibilities of classic Cognac and add to it the “freedom” of the new world. The nose is quite aromatic with candied orange peel, leather, baking spice, and potpourri. The palate is a whole new ride with honey, dried apricot, golden raisins, burnt sugar and cacao on finish. This is well worth investigating, especially for the hardened Cognac aficionado.

Proof 80 (40% ABV)
