- Very nice HP, that allows itself to be enjoyed without water. Ideal
companion for dessert after a hearty meal. Around 70 EUR.
The king of sherry, PX, immediately dominates the nose. Raisins in syrup
and fresh figs on top, with maple syrup and some white fruit underneath. Something
dusty, like fresh wood shavings. Chocolate and dried apricots. Very nice.
It is oily, almost creamy, on the palate. Soft on the spices like cloves
and different peppers. It brings the sweet, dark fruits into the footlights.
Slightly bitter and hence a good balance. Reminds me a bit of dark bread. Light
hint of chocolate.
In the long finish, with remains a bit smoky, it is the raisins and the
chocolate that jump out.
- N: fruity - apple/pear, chocolate and syrup
T: grains, honey and somewhat young
