Alvisa Group from Spain went home with Gold and two Silver medals at the 2019 Bartenders Spirits Awards held on May 19th in San Francisco, USA. Its Alvisa 10 was awarded gold; meanwhile Alvisa 5 and Alvisa XO were both awarded a silver medal.
Alvisa 10 - as the name says is a 10 year aged brandy, described as “The taste of a decade”. The decade aged brandy is of a bright colour with dark amber sight and a touch of brown and old gold tints.
On the nose, Alvisa 10 shells out aromas of both vanilla and cinnamon, along with a rustic wooden touch that does justice to its 10 year aging.
With a 40% ABV, Alvisa 10 is warm in the mouth with a long and velvety finish - a divine taste to be precise.
Describes as “Young and Powerful”, Alvisa 5, a 5 year aged brandy - has a clean and bright amber look, with gold tints gracing it. Elegant French Oak tones such as vanilla, cocoa and a touch of hazelnut are brought out on the nose. Its palate is balanced, fleshy, and with a 40% ABV, French Oak tannins in the mouth are appreciated.
Known as the “Jewel of Alvisa”, this supreme brandy is aged for 6 years with an ABV of 40%. It’s clean and bright on the eyes - amber tones with mahogany and old gold tints putting it on the spot.
It’s intense aromas are elegant and are a graceful blend of oak and vanilla, well distinguished with cocoa and nuts. The taste of Alvisa XO is warm, velvety and it has a long finish.
