Cardenal Mendoza Brandy was originally produced in 1887 for the exclusive use of the Sanchez Romate family and close friends, but it was of such outstanding quality that it created an immediate demand. It is still made according to the same family recipe today, and the brandy is aged for an average of 15 years.
NOSE - Aromas of raisins and plums, espresso coffee and a touch of liquorice.
TASTE - Sweet and fat on the palate, with lots of dried fruit and more raisins. Distinctive, unique taste with a very cultured PX-influenced and just enough bittersweet coffee and caramel to balance well.
FINISH - Well balanced, long and nutty.
