Review #846 – Copper and Kings American Brandy, Distillery Hand Filled Cask

**Review #846 | /r/Brandy Review #31 – Copper and Kings American Brandy, Distillery Hand Filled Cask**

The Schtick: This is a single barrel, hand filled bottle of Copper and Kings American Brandy. It was matured in a Four Roses barrel, and bottled at cask strength. They do not filter, or color, their spirits.


Distiller: Copper and Kings (Kentucky, USA)

Bottler: Copper and Kings

ABV: 63% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Clove, pepper, nougat, ethanol, cherry, cocoa, pepper, rich berries. I’m really enjoying the diversity here on the nose. Not too dominantly fruit, not too oaky. Not too sweet but not too bitter.

Taste: Thick, rich, oaky. Lots of cherry, cocoa, pepper, and tobacco. Man this is nice. Lots of rich blackberry and currant with cloves near the back. Some heat, reasonable for the proof.

Finish: Long, some heat. Complex and rich. Cocoa, oak, pepper and caramel play nicely. Rich blackberry preserve and tobacco.

Overall: This was really fantastic. Rich, complex, oaky but too much. Big fan. The heat was in check, the oak was in check, the fruits got their time in the limelight. Really well executed.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
