I come from Wisconsin now in Nashville. The only time I get a brandy old fashioned or a brandy Manhatten is when I make it myself. Most bars here don't even carry brandy. This particular brand is one of my favs.

Haven’t tried it yet but think it will bring my Sangria to the next level
Brandy is predominantly sweet and fruity, generally between 40-50% ABV and often aged for several years before its final blending and bottling.
Some more regulated types of brandy, including Cognac and Armagnac, are required to age for a minimum amount of time in oak barrels, though most distillers opt to age their brandies for significantly longer, which improves the quality and undoubtedly raises the price per bottle. On the whole, brandies are aged between three to five years, though some premium varieties surpass 10 years or more.
Besides apples and grapes, other popular fruits employed in brandy making include plums, cherries, peaches, apricots and pears; it’s a truly varied liquor depending on the geography and the culture where it’s crafted.
Aging brandy in charred oak barrels helps further develop its complex flavors, as well as the final blending process by which water and other brandies are balanced and combined.
Keeping the brandy a bit warmer or adding a little water can further develop the aromas and overall flavor.
Brandy is a popular ingredient in fruit-based cocktails as well, like colorful sangrias and zesty sidecars; because of its sweetness, brandy tends to appear in dessert recipes, often soaked with coffee in delicacies like tiramisu.
