Clear medium amber; medium intensity aldehydic aromas of dried orange peel, candied fruit, cloves, yeasty dough, caramel, hazelnut, tobacco, cedar, toast; dry, medium acid, medium alcohol, medium body, medium intensity flavors of butterscotch, caramel, cedar, tobacco, toast, spiced orange peel, medium plus finish; very good due to complex layering of flavors

Shows quite a bit hot for amontillado. Not Lustau’s best.

Toffee, orange peels, pralines. Great dryness with some baby fat. Delicious and less than $20. My everyday Amontillado...18.5% ABV.

Amber color with roasted nuts, spiced orange peel, toffee,dates, and honey aromas. On the palate it's between medium and full-bodied, dry and rich with wonderful fruit and tangy acidity. It shows molasses, dates, spiced orange peel, roasted hazelnut flavors with a bit of salinity and a lingering off-dry finish.

One of the tastiest combos around -- Amontillado #sherry and cashews. Either alone is not as good as the mix of both. Great wine but watch the temp...no good cold.
