    First time I tried this was in Rome in 2009, now I have a bottle every Christmas, a real cockle warmer

    the first time I bought a bottle, I was 24 ... that was 1976 ... I still consider this brandy the best I have swirled around my tongue ...

    For me, Cardenal Mendoza is about the best brandy you can get for a reasonable price, although it is not cheap, being a super premium . I even preferred it to Gran Duque de Alba which is a close match. However, if you do not drink it within a long period of time, it will lose its alcohol and it will be no good. No resemblance to Cognac. This is one of the best Spanish brandies there is.

    Am sipping it right now and it takes time to get used to. It is different than French and American Brandy. At first, the color, the smell and the taste remind you of a sweet wine but you get fooled at the finish with a long dry aftertaste. I do not know how to describe it yet because it is totally different but worth it. the nose is extraordinary and the taste is full and mouth filling.

    Dave: We're based in London, so I would suspect that we count as UK stockist :)

    I agree with above comments, my favourite too. but is difficult to find in the UK. Does anyone know of a stockist ?

    Sue: it shouldn't change too much in the bottle as it's high in alcohol. It shouldn't have got worse in the bottle though.

    Does anyone know if this brandy ages well with time? I hav a bottle I received as a gift about 20 years ago. It is still in the cork box it came in.
