Brandy tasting was never on my to do list but as the opportunity was there we went for it and it was a great decision!! The welcoming cocktail was perfect and gave me a new combi should I be having brandy.
We did a tour of the distillery and included in it was a demonstration on how to make a barrel which I enjoyed very much. After that we went on to taste the brandy and we opted for the brandy and chocolate pairing so we tasted 12,15 and 20 year old brandy each paired with an appropriate chocolate. It was very interesting to note the difference aging has on the color, smell and smoothness of brandy.
I must say the servings for tasting are quite generous - almost a shot for each type - and I did ask to mix mine with some coke which they said they do not allow for tastings. Needless to say I did not finish my portion.
The ambiance is very well suited for brandy tasting and to chill for a while.
If doing the wine tasting on same day rather do brandy tasting in moderation.
