Launched summer 2012, we classify Ysabel Regina (‘Y.R.’ for short) as a Spanish brandy. Its is made from a blend of Gran Solera Reserva Spanish brandy produced by Ximenez Spinola with a small proportion of VSOP cognac and is aged in casks which previously held Pedro Ximénez sherry.

White chocolate, fruit cake and banana cake with burnt sugar, sauternes, butter and nutmeg. Very faint gentle smokiness.
