Review #1344 – Copper & Kings Blue Sky Mining Brandy

The Schtick: This release from Copper & Kings in KY is a muscat brandy that is finished in reconditioned red wine casks. I was in Kentucky some time ago to buy a barrel of bourbon, so naturally I thought it made sense to bring back more gin, agave and brandy than bourbon. Go figure. I’m typically a big fan of the work done by Copper and Kings, so I’m looking forward to this as well. Let’s dive in.

Review #1344 | Brandy Review #58

Distiller: Copper & Kings

Bottler: Brand: Copper & Kings

Selection: N/A

ABV: 50% ABV

Nose: Super sweet – syrupy and loaded with confectioners sugar, rich raisin, grape, faint hops. Musty, rich, old tobacco, bright blackberry.

Taste: Vanilla, misty grape, cocoa and raisin bread. Sweet toffee, loads of blackberry and currant. Cinnamon apple.

Finish: Long, rich, musty and fun. Lots of apple, cinnamon, raisin bread, blackberry and toffee.
