It’s been a while since we’ve done a Liquor Lab. In fact we shot this one a long time ago and it just stayed on a shelf…in a cool, quiet, dark place just like the aging Vanilla Brandy itself.
This one turned out really good. I patiently waited more than 6 months to fully enjoy it. Although technically you could drink it after only 2 weeks, but I don’t recommend it. Go the distance and wait at least 6 months. Heck if you start now, you will have something really great to drink or to serve at Christmas time!
