The French Spirits Forum- Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados


Recommended Posts

One of the stores near me has the exact same bottle, and I really like it. I keep a bottle here at all times, and it has been given as a gift several times to introduce friends to something new.

Wow, is it clear? I am super intrigued by this triple B. Growing up, we had a Montmorency cherry tree in our back yard. It wasn't a chore to pick the cherries, as the benefit was my mom's cherry pie. So, I pretty much love all things cherry. I am looking forward to your thoughts about this drink.
