Nose 👃: Apple. Honey. Caramel.  Brown sugar. Vanilla.  Pie crust.


Palate 👅: Crisp apple. Baking spices. Caramel. Vanilla frosting. Floral. Oily mouthfeel.


Finish 🏁: Mint. Brown sugar.  Baking spices. Caramel.  Dry.  Very long in length.


I love grape-based brandy, but apple is my preferred… and Calvados hits the spot.  This particular bottle is quite good to sip neat… as I typically judge all spirits.  The price seems to roam from $46-$65… making it an excellent bump for your favorite cocktail.  I’ll happily drink this neat, but will also enjoy in an occasional mixed drink.
