4 years of biological aging filled by another four years of aging after the yeast kill. Hazelnut. Great pairing for game.

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

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

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.
