Can Someone Identify This Portuguese Spirit?

Hi All,
I am trying to identify a spirit I purchased in Portugal about 12 years ago. The pic is of the bottle it came in. The bottle came in a wooden box. I find the taste to be reminiscent of a slightly sweet brandy.
Any suggestions as to what this spirit maybe?
With thanks,

      Or more likely Aguardente

      Thanks chefj.
      After googling Aguardente then Portuguese brandy I found this: https://www.garrafeiranacional.com/ol... (I hope I can post external links).
      This is the very product I purchased.
      Thanks again for your suggestion.
