Germain Robin Millard Fillmore Brandy

Germain Robin Millard Fillmore Brandy...$31.99
"The folks at Germain-Robin, a craft distillery in Northern California, honored the 13th president of the United States, Millard Fillmore, with their latest brandy because, like American brandies, they consider him to be not very well known or appreciated. I confess little knowledge of President Fillmore, the last Whig Party president (1850 to 1853), but I have been an admirer of the Cognac-style brandies the company keeps producing. You may call this new one an entry-level brandy, a gentle blend that delivers smooth, floral and dried-fruit notes on the palate and sells for a reasonable price." -- The New York Times
