I got to know this in my late teens living in Germany , and have enjoyed it ( some times a little to much ) for the last 40 odd years on and off. I like a good brandy , and this is up there with brandy that costs at least twice as much , lovely on it own at room temperature , or with ice , or as a long drink with coke ( preferred drink of forces and ex forces ) , lemonade , or fantastic with a ginger beer. Try it , you won't regret it . The sad thing is that you can't seem to get it in the 1Ltr or 3Ltr bottles as you can in the rest of the EU . It's got a fantastic colour , and the aroma is fantastic. If you can try some of the older vintages as well , you will be very impressed .

Our friends introduced Asbach to my wife and I several years ago, my wife detests it (she only drinks rubbish wine), but I love this exquisitely smooth Brandy. Mellow, with a beautiful oak aroma, rich colours with a distinctive and rather pleasing flavour, no other Brandy comes close. I love Germany, the people, the culture and most of all the beautiful Brandy that is Asbach Uralt, a winner in every sense.

I am writing on behalf of my wife as well as myself. We recently visited Rudesheim and had are first encounter with Asbach. I am not a brandy drinker nor is my wife. However now we are. Tennessee whiskey and Scotch are my drink of choice and my wife has a fondness for the oakiness of Jack. This could explain our instant love for Asbach. It has a mellow full flavour with the light hint of fruit sweetness but the overtone of oak which we loved. We love it in our coffee or straight not to mention the dark chocolate candies. If ever given the opportunity to try Asbach, we highly recommend it.

Asbach is wonderful. When I am sick and need a hot toddie, a shot if this in some hot tea is wonderful. I so loved it when I was stationed in Germany. I am unable to find it here in the states. The only place is in the Class 6 store on an military base. Wish I could find it locally or even order it for myself. A little bit goes a long way. 1 bottle can last me 1 year or so......
