Copper & Kings not only is changing the game for spirits by distilling brandy in bourbon country, but their dedication to pushing the envelope for their barrel program is downright inspiring. Meet a new product that shows yet another example of their commitment to their craft, the 3 Marlenas. Like some other of their brandies I went from being sceptical to being impressed. The tequila barrel adds an impressive if subtle note of candied fruit and spice to the richness of their brandy. Fortunately while the barrel definitely adds a uniqueness to the brandy it does not overwhelm it, the tropical fruit notes blending harmoniously into the apple.
