A good one and certainly a classic sherrycannon. Tasted in a bar a few years ago. Nice one, though there have been some old sherried ones even a lot more to my liking. Now the question: for all I understand this is a speculative investors item in it's presently priced commodity form. So it's for the lords and ladies of the high commercial courts of humanity and as such has nothing to do with a malt-peasant like me. So this must be unbearably naive, but isn't 12000€ (the current 'budget' WB-price) or 15800£ (the price in the shop it's available in at 11.8.2016) a 'bit' much?
It is a sherry-heaven! Raisins, dates and figs, sweet orange & orange-peel, slight chocolate, some mint, dark coffee beans and both dark & maple syrup. Sweet, round and luscious.
Quite tarty initially, pungent red berries like lingon- and cranberry, maybe some raspberry and dried strawberries, honey. When it settles down with water the deep sherry starts talking: fresh dates, dried plum and figs, orange-peel, sweet dark coffee, syrups and cane sugar. This is impressive yet not as stunning as the nose.
Long, sweet and very sherried, drying a bit towards the end.
