UNCORK SOMETHING GREAT • SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2017
SANCHEZ ROMATE HNOS CARDENAL
MENDOZA SOLERA GRAN RESERVA
Brandy de Jerez, Spain
TASTING NOTE: Butterscotch galore! This sweet
and beautifully balanced Brandy, made with PX
(Pedro Ximenez) grapes from the Jerez region of
Spain, would be dynamite with holiday fruit cake, rum
cake, or while enjoying a fine Cuban cigar, or one
of my favourite non-Cuban sticks, a 1992 Vintage
Rocky Patel. Very impressive Brandy that I’d highly
recommend enjoying this holiday season. Score:

Marolo began crafting his elegant, stylish grappas in
1977. This one is created using chamomile blossoms
infused in Nebbiolo grappa.

PO’ DI POLI MORBIDA SMOOTH
Product of Italy
TASTING NOTE: Jacopo Poli, one of the world’s most
famous grappa producers today made a special
effort to work with muscat. He felt the aromatic grape
aromas of this varietal make it distinguishable even
to the neophyte. This beautifully perfumed distillate
of the pomace of orange blossom muscat and white
muscat is distilled in antique copper pot stills. It’s
clear, colourless and fragrant with a perfumed nose
of flowers, fresh hay and summer meadows. Very
pretty, elegant with a flowery taste of orange, grapes
and blossoms it’s distinctive and memorable. Score:
