Copper & Kings Floodwall Apple Brandy
Named for the iconic protective wall that stretches behind their Butchertown distillery, Floodwall is a superb blend of superior, copper pot-distilled apple brandy aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels and 250-liter Oloroso sherry casks from Spain. Made from American apple brandy with a minimum age of four years, a full-bodied spirit at 100 proof alcohol strength. Floodwall is non-chill filtered with no post-distillation addition of apple flavor or essences, no Boisé (oak flavor or infusion), sugar or caramel color for an authentic, uncorrupted natural flavor and natural color.
Aromas of honeyed apple bouquet (unusually fresh) with lovely complexity. Quite floral, honeysuckle and butterscotch mingling with hints of whiskey, oak, and vanilla. Flavors are quite crisp, frisky and slightly mid-palate. “Scotchy” and a little nutty rancio with sherry butterscotch and red-apple skin. Finish is oily with lots of legs. Hangs in on the tongue for ages with a racy back end finish.
