Walking Stick Armenian Brandy
During the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries, America could be a dangerous place, and knowledge of self-defense was often necessary for use in both urban and rural environments. To those ends, fencing masters and instructors often modified and applied fencing techniques to a cane or walking stick, creating their own systems of self-defense. The result is essentially a wooden cane or a wooden stick with a blade is concealed inside it. The upper class men routinely carried it to practice swordsmanship. It represented wealth and privilege, as well as being a tool of self-defense.
On the palate of this Walking Stick brandy, the product has a rich, creamy texture with notes of raisins, figs, apricots and a hint of pear. The finish is long, with dried fruit sweetness and cinnamon notes along with a bit of toasted oak.
