I got used to fruit distillates (dry, not sweet) while in Europe, eg, Poire Williams (pear), Framboise (raspberry), Vielle Prune, Calvados (apple), but the brands I can get here are not in the same league as what I used to get in Europe. An exception is a Calvados (XO) by Norois, pricy but worth it. Ranks with the best single malts, bourbons, cognacs and armagnacs that l sip periodically as an after dinner treat. Monsieur Touton Selections in New York is the importer.
