Review: Germain-Robin Apple Brandy

Not your father’s Applejack, Germain-Robin’s artisanal apple brandy is not cloyingly sweet but rather a fruit-tinged brandy, just as good fruit brandy should be. Dry and smooth, the nose offers vanilla and light chocolate notes, and really little more than a hint of apples. That’s right: The apple orchard takes a back seat to the smooth and traditional brandy notes, rich and a little raisiny, even with a little orange on the finish. Lively, easygoing, and borderline delicious, apple brandy rarely reaches anything approaching this good.

80 proof.
