Gorelli BS No. 1 brandy is something that requires a careful and nuanced analysis. It's the kind of brandy that can suffer in a "derby" setting where critics are sampling brandy after brandy side-by-side in an accelerated format. It is so vastly different-almost a different category-than its peers that it must suffer by comparison. But the better comparison is fruit-forward eau-de-vie or potentially calvados. When tasting with fruit and grape character in mind, in this arena the Gorelli is near peerless! This is small solace to the whiskey enthusiast who ruminates on aging, cellars, barrels, and the patient intermixing of spirit and wood.. for these, Gorelli may disappoint. It will delight others who revere the vineyards and the stomped grape in the oak vat. In principle, it exposes where the critics are fallible. It is an excellent spirit for what it is and judged on what it achieves rather than how it sits in the categorical box by which the judges constrain it.
