Distilled during the winter of 1989, Brandy No. 89 is a classic. Opening with caramel, toasty vanilla aromas, as layer upon layer unfolds on each sip with notes of pear, jasmine & touches of dark chocolate. Well-balanced and refined, with a nice heat and spice on the finish.
Double-distilled in Charbay’s Alambic Charentais Pot Still from a blend of 74% Pinot Noir & 26% Sauvignon Blanc. Aged 24 years in new French Limousin & Nevers oak.
“We selected 22 barrels that captured the toasty, caramel richness that we wanted for this release. When it got down to the strength of the finished brandy, I didn’t have the heart to cut the alcohol below 46% because the flavors were so meshed and smooth. So though you may expect a Brandy at 40%, there’s a little more gusto in this bottling”. – Marko Karakasevic
