Review and Tasting

Clear, coppery golden amber with burnished copper glints.
Saddle leather, pastry, blackened fruitcake, vanilla fudge, mandarin orange, nutmeg and light clove.
Sweet fruitcake, leather, caramel, vanilla fudge, toasted almond and prune with zesty orange and light nutmeg and clove spice.
Long finish. Buttery leather, fruitcake, vanilla fudge and clove spice.
This fruity and beautifully balanced French brandy might lack the depth of complexity of a great cognac, but compare the alcohol strength and the price and you’ll be staggered at just how good this brandy is at the price. However, it’s not just great value for money, Brandy Sainte Louise is tasty, with attractive dried fruity, vanilla and leathery caramel delicately invigorated by nutmeg and clove spice.
