Pale yellow. Salty, iodized
notes. Fresh. — 15 days ago
A nice, highly drinkable Amontillado. Candied fruited, Mandarine peel and toasted nuts + a wonderful salty finish to the (slightly more than) off dry body.
Pass on the olives and salted almonds! — 22 days ago
Crisp with zippy acididity and nice flor aromas. Quite fruity with green apples and lemon peel and salty almonds.
Typically bone-dry and very nice as an aperitif but also quite good friendly. And a nice entry point to sherry for non-believers. — 22 days ago
Dried fruit, sherry notes, golden orange colour — 11 days ago
Experiments in bottle aging sherry... This has a beautiful deep amber hue. Quite saline nose, oceanic really, and the smell of tanned leather, dried apricots, seaweed, lightly roasted coffee beans and hazelnuts. Nose is a touch alcohol but mellows. Palate is also salty and mineral with dried fruit and walnuts and an emergent sweetness. More pronounced bitter finish than I remember at release (2016), but acids have calmed. These barbadillos really need food, and are great values- hard to get more concentrated elegance for the money. — 6 hours ago
