Oh my! Where do you begin?
N: Go down to the pier and get yourself a bag of salted, buttered, nuts. Saline butterscotch, with mold(good)around the edges.Oranges and flowers, Almonds.
P: Saline, Iodine, brown butter, viscous on the tongue with a long sharp acidic, citrus finish. Marvelous. There’s tobacco and wood when you hold it in your mouth and take in air.

Rey Fernando de Castilla

Antique Oloroso Sherry

Genius sherry to pour for your wine friends who “don’t get” sherry. Huge aromatics. Salty, butter popcorn, creme brûlée. Citrus pith, nutty. Palate is dry and expansive, complex and balanced with searing acidity. Brilliant. — 4 months ago
