(90-95) Points - Wine Enthusiast
Burnished bronze in color, Laird's 12 Year Old Rare Apple Brandy is crafted from tree ripened apples and fermented using the naturally occurring yeasts on the apple. It is then pot distilled, aged in charred oak barrels for 12 years and charcoal filtered before bottling by hand at 88 proof. The result is a full-bodied spirit with intense aromas of caramel, nutmeg, vanilla, baked coffee and oak, followed by lingering notes of raisin, maple and tobacco leading to a graceful finish.
"Smells appealingly of baked apple, nutmeg, oak, and pine. Wonderful palate entry tastes of raisins, dates, apple pastry, pineapple and maple. Finishes gracefully and assertively tart." - Wine Enthusiast
