Proof66 Notes

Christian Brothers is generally associated as a brand of brandy founded in 1882 based upon California grape varietals. The brand is owned by a company called CB Vineyards of Kentucky but, according to the filing with the US Tax and Trade Bureau, sourced from Heaven Hill Distilleries whom we show here as the producer. We guess that the wine is produced in California and then shipped and distilled at Heaven Hill.

Christian Brothers VS ("very special") Brandy is their youngest brandy aged for at least 2 year prior to bottling. It is blended to be "smooth" and "full bodied." They note it as a blend of American and European brandy, though it is marketed as an American brandy.

Nice color.  Aromas of fruit and oak, and hazelnut.  Tastes of Oak and smoke and somethng that I can't quite put my finger on.  almost no complexity.  With Brandy you get what you pay for.  In my opinion theres nothing "Very Special" about this one.

I tried a bit of this during a hliday function once. The only stand-out thing about its character was that it had a rather horrid taste of rubber for the finish. I've heard that such effects in alcohol are a sign of less than stellar processing techniques. Not surprising, given the price of this stuff. Because of this, I can't recommend it, especially since it was the only memorable quality it had. I'd say avoid this one.
