Love this bottle! Full, rich and deep without going over the top.

Learning the history of palo cortado straight from the mouth of master Antonio Flores. All heart this one, an accordion fold of intoxicatingly savory beauty.

17.5/20 (93/100)

Деликатный аромат вяленых яблок и айвы, сливовое варенье, морские оттенки, карамель, нотки дыма, ваниль. Живая кислотность, орехово-карамельное послевкусие.

Gripping power, smooth finish. Half the price of a 20 year tawny port, and twice as delicious.

I always have a bottle of Sherry in my fridge - vastly under appreciated as a category. It’s prime for my favorite activity - pre-dinner snacking. A good persistent Oloroso alongside toasted hazelnuts (yes must be toasted) and aged Gouda with the crystallized protein crunchies is ethereal.

This is a very good Palo Cortado, like a blurred Amontillado and Oloroso - deep and layered. Crystallized amber. Syrupy caramels, toffee, dried orange, soy, mushroom, and bitter walnuts.
