Yes . . . I am Rabble!! Here are my thoughts on E&Js VSOP Brandy. I compared it to Korbel's standard brandy. While Korbels has a somewhat strong, strident feeling, and a rather plain taste, E&Js was - by comparison - smoother, richer. I could taste fruit (raisen, plum, fig), but not overwhelming by any stretch. Never having the pleasure of tasting the really "good stuff", I'm settling on a 4 star rating for E&J. In my personal opinion, it could well be a five star.

The XO is way better. This does ok chilled and neat in a small glass, after a meal, sort of a digestif or a substitute for something like grappa or port. Go for the XO instead.

It drinks OK, but the headaches I get from it are really bad, even if I have just few glasses.

Not a fan at all - this tastes more like a bad rum than a bad brandy. What that means is that it's just bad.
