The Tastings.com review of 1876 Press House Brandy notes: “Medium gold color. Earthy aromas and flavors of leather, polished cedar, and dry raisin toast with a soft, crisp, dry light-to-medium body and a warming, compelling, medium-long dried citrus and herbs, straw and tobacco, and vanilla finish. A very interesting dry, rustic, and woody brandy reminiscent of an old Armagnac.”
