2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Cardenal Mendoza Brandy de Jerez, 40% abv

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Potent dark fruits, medjool dates and baked plums reign in this classic Spanish brandy without overpowering a clean structure that flecks the characteristcally jammy brandy with refined notes of toasted walnut skin, salted caramel, and a slight citrus peel acidity dancing about and bringing brightness to this most excellent brandy.
