Copper and Kings
From the Distillery:
"Since 1796 home to butchers, brawlers, bakers and brewers. Artists and artisans, distillers, tanners, orphans and families, and everything else in between.
Home to Copper & Kings’ Butchertown Brandy.
Boom, Boom. Imagine bottling the spirit of john lee hooker – supple, sexy, full-bodied and rhythmic. Imagine bottling the spirit of the modern jazz quartet – elevated, elegant, sophisticated – bluesy with a hint of improvisation.
This is drop dead gorgeous brandy. This is bad-ass brandy. This is not ordinary, everyday brandy. A blend of distiller selected reserve casks. Superb, exclusively copper pot-distilled small batch brandy. 75% aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels and 25% in new American oak.
Appearance: dark brown, golden mahogany. Slightly viscous.
Aroma: strongly reminiscent of superior whiskey and Kentucky bourbon. Blackberry fruit, with hints of cherry.
Taste: fabulous brandy start, bold, robust, strong whiskey notes with brandy fruit coming forth towards the back end. Rollicking, rock ’n roll almost rye whiskey like on the
Mid-palate, joyous. Superb structure and backbone.
High proof chewy. Hints of irish pot-still fruity whiskey.
Stone-fruit -- peaches, dark cherry in the surround sound.
Finish: slight tannic, oaky dryness, lingers on the tongue. Velvety smooth (and approachable), especially for high proof spirit."
