In the days when alcohol was taxed by volume rather than strength, wine merchants sought ways to reduce the amount of excise tax they incurred. By distilling their wine down, and thus making it stronger, they not only made it easier to transport but also incurred less tax. The distilled wine - what we now call brandy - could then be brought back to its original volume simply by adding water. Made by one of the largest and oldest brandy producers in Spain (established 1772), Bodegas Osbourne, this wonderfully smooth gran reserva Sherry Brandy has spent 15 years in American oak, helping to produce its intense dark amber color and gold highlights. On the nose it has a good distilled aroma with sweet notes of vanilla and tobacco, while on the palate it is deep and persistent. Overall, this brandy is balanced, rounded and very elegant.
