Emilio Lustau

Almacenista José Luis González Obregon Amontillado del Puerto Palomino Fino 1896

2021/4 with jamon, potato and truffle tortilla, paella, etc. This bottle was on the oxidative side of amontillado- lots of dried stone fruits, cream, and nuts - and very delicious. — 2 days ago

Almacenista Manuel Cuevas Jurado Manzanilla Pasada de Sanlucar Jerez-Xérès-Sherry 1896

2021/4 as an aperitif. This starts off very briny, pungent and austere, but opens over several days to reveal stony fruit, almonds and custard - the manzanilla base is very much in evidence, but there’s lots of oxidative completely too. — 2 days ago

Emilio Lustau

Almacenista Pata de Gallina Oloroso Palomino Fino

2021/4. Intensely and rich, with lot of raisins, brandied fruit, and walnuts - but also a wonderful balancing acidity to keep things bright. Just a hint of rancio on the finish. — 2 days ago

San Emilio PX Solera Reserva Sherry Pedro Ximénez 1896

NV | I am not thát fond about PX but this Lustau blew me away. Luscious smell, multi layered with dates and currants, very vibrant and elegant. It might be that the combination with an Italian chocolate cake, raspberries and berries contributed to my high appreciation. Happiness ☺️. Fantastic effort, very balanced — 10 days ago

Deluxe Dry Sherry Fino Palomino Fino

Enjoying! Feel like it has some oxidation. Odd because it is Fino. But quite tasty. Nutty salty freshly baked white bread and natural honey. You could take it anywhere and no one will pull you aside to tell you they are worried about you hanging out with it going down the wrong path etc — a day ago

Viejo C.P. Macharnudo Vineyard Palo Cortado Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

Like Valdespino’s Fino Inocente and Amontillado Tio Diego, it is sourced from the Macharnudo Alto vineyard, the highest point and probably the most famous vineyard in the Marco de Jerez and made with with specific casks from these Fino and Amontillado rerouted to oxidative aging. Aged for an average of 25 years in the solera system. Beautiful aromas of caramel, orange rind, and iodine. Sharp, precise, quite saline, with flavors of hazelnuts. Very very long finish with lingering hazelnuts — 9 days ago
