This Month's Liquor Pick is a Brandy That Will Definitely Warm You Up

Torres 10 brandy
Torres 10 is like brandy meets sherry meets rum, our liquor expert says.

For January, this will warm you up. This is not a cocktail rum. I’d say it’s best described as brandy meets sherry meets rum.

Torres 10 is made from a distillate of white wines from the Penedés region in Spain. Once distilled, it’s aged in American oak casks using a traditional solera aging system, meaning the brand you get is a minimum of 10 years old. It’s a nice dark-colored brandy, with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and a bit of tannin from the oak. $22.99.
