Seven Tails XO French Brandy--AUGUST SPIRIT OF THE MONTH!
Usually when blending multiple styles together, some characteristics of the individual spirits can be lost. That is not the case for the Seven Tails; the spice and warmth from Armagnac is still found, the richness and roundness of the Cognac can be found and the French Brandy serves as the backbone.
Baked apple and coco first hit the palate, almost like the spirit is trying to give your palate a warm welcome. Baking spice characteristics along with coating caramel and toasted vanilla add to the decadence of the Brandy. While it does have this rich, warming flavors, that baking spice and apple profiles keep the spirit balanced nicely.
