VS may generally be a bit disappointing, but the VSOP range may be more to your liking for brandy style with a little sweetness. Prunier is generally supposed to be a bit sweeter than some of the other producers. For more sherry-level sweetness, Brandy de Jerez is really tough to beat. Marie Duffau armagnac was also relatively sweet to me, but more caramelly, and still heavier than the cognacs.

If you are looking for something a bit on the sweet side, I would say give the Courvoisier 12 year old a try or even the Remy Martin 1738 (or whatever year it is.) These are a step above VSOP without breaking the bank and are much sweeter than anything I usually keep around. Most likely they will contain artificial colorant and sweetener but so do some much more expensive blends. Calvados (French apple brandy) has a really nice applely, sugary, caramelly sweetness to it though it tends to be expensive for the sippin' stuff.
