Does not have the same character, complexity, and structure as 15 and 17 but still very interesting.

Completely obsessed with this. Has that waxy and honeyed lemon of old Lopez. Fresh burst of citrus spritz. Then slapped with that salinity of the manzanilla. So damn good.

Complex nuttiness like a mole sauce from the sherry, baked apples, faint kerosene, saline and weighty, waxy mouthfeel. Great with fish tacos

Not for me. A little oily. Too much sherry-ish.
