Paul Masson Grande Amber VS Brandy (Very Special) is aged in oak a minimum of three years – one year longer than required – for extra smoothness. Additional aging creates a luminous red amber glow, fine aromas, and flavor that sets our VS Brandy apart from ordinary two-year old brandies. A special blend of grapes is also used to develop its smoothness, and the three year aging in American oak casks gives it a full body. The resulting brandy taste is a combination of pralines, caramel, maple, and vanilla. From the blending of Brandy at the turn of the century by Paul Masson himself, the knowledge and craftsmanship of over 100 years make Paul Masson Grande Amber Brandy unrivaled. Taking pride from the vineyard to the bottle, it only fits that Paul Masson could develop a brandy with the look, feel, and smoothness of the finest Cognacs. Paul Masson VS is a smoothly sophisticated brandy crafted in the European tradition. Paul Masson Grande Amber VS Brandy is a perfect addition to cocktail recipes. With a balanced body that is a perfect addition to countless cocktail recipes, ideal for a Mango Colada. Enjoy!
