Faisan normand - Calvados substitute

Joined Aug 20, 2010
I just bought a young pheasant and want to cook it a la normand. However, I don't have any Calvados at home and the brandy is quite expensive. I do have a bottle of eau de vie de poires du valais, which is a similar type of brandy. I also have some white rum, some scotch, some red vermouth, some dry gin, some homemade mead and some other alcohols. Which do you think would make the best substitute? Thanks.
