I feel bad.
A friend gave me a bottle of Ambre last Christmas. grand Champagne, blend of minimum 10 year old stocks.
I found it to be the worst brandy I ever drank, so harsh that I can't tell you what it tastes like, because I cannot taste anything at all . Nose is alcoholic and petrolly, appearance is clear medium amber.
What's the story? bad bottle? Or just bad brandy?
I am familiar with and enjoy many other spirits including other Cognacs.
