Brandy is a drink which arouses passions among those who drink it. In the following article which we have written for you, we will analyse the characteristics of the 3 principal Cardenal Mendoza brandies as well as the common traits among the people who choose them for every day drinking.
Cardenal Mendoza ‘Clásico’
If you are a sincere person, who speaks your mind and have soundly based opinions according to your own principles, this brandy is made for you. The tasting notes describe a Brandy de Jerez which is “luminous, complex, clean and elegant, and which matches chocolate to perfection”.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Cardenal Mendoza “Clásico” can be found in the glasses of the most discriminating; those who seek to discover new and exciting sensations, who want to treat themselves to “the right spark” – as Bunbury put it – in their lives.
Reyes – our oenologist – describes it thus: “It has great personality and perfectly balanced nuances which make it ideal to enjoy on one’s own or in good company”.
All things considered this Spanish Brandy is completely in accord with current tastes; serene yet full of adventure, and its appearance, aroma and flavour will transport you to wherever you wish to go.
Cardenal Mendoza ‘Carta Real’
With an average age of 25 years, Carta Real is a brandy which really fits the bill. “Its radiant old mahogany colour, elegant aromas of fine old oak and gentle notes of sweet wine and prune, along with a beautifully rounded, smooth and lingering flavour combine to give it exceptional character”.
