      ArArAt, an Armenian brandy, is not very common in the US, but well-respected in other parts of the world, even being legally allowed to call itself cognac due to blind tasting in Paris in 1900 (now distinguished as ‘Armenian cognac’). Native Armenian and Georgian grape varietals and aging in Persian oak make for a more floral and less tannic final brandy. The five year gives up some dried fruit notes like plum, peach, and orange peel with a hint of bitter chocolate. Makes a superb Sidecar.
