A glossy red-purple colour with an expressive nose of dense macerated red fruits and that toasty spicy oak and chocolate. Full and round and packed full of fruit, crisp acidity and ripe tannins.
Blandy's Duke of Clarence is fined and does not require decanting. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, chocolate puddings and soft cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinkingand will keep for several months after opening.
A unique Spanish brandy with strong notes of grapes and raisins, Cardenal Mendoza Solera has a syrupy texture, is sweet on the palate and has a flavour profile which builds and builds. From the sweet aroma of plums and liquorice, with a light touch of espresso coffee, Cardenal Mendoza Solera has a flavour which combines these distinct flavours with additional hints of caramel to balance the bittersweet coffee notes. A perfect balance which is long and has a satisfying nutty aftertaste.
