2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Cardenal Mendoza Solera Gran Reserva Carta Real Brandy de Jerez (Spain), 40% abv, $100.00

Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Pouring a deep mahogany in the glass, it’s redolent of dried fruits, molasses and licorice root. In the mouth, it’s unctuous and decadent, raisiny and nutty, with a rich sherried note that lingers on the finish.
