Sherry /// Blend // Jerez / Spain
Nose: big, generous nose with a wide fruitiness (juicy figs, dried dates, some apricots), an intense caramel touch and lovely waxy aromas (polished furtniture, beeswax, treated leather). Hints of cinnamon buns, vanilla cream and roasted almonds. Caramel coated peanuts as well.
Mouth: lovely intensity. It opens with the same hints of dried fruits, with an off-sweet roundness and a nicely balancing acidity. Its texture reminds me of the velvety smoothness they call Pata de Gallina, though maybe less oily in this case. Plenty of spicy notes (pepper, hints of clove) and a clear woody edge. Concentrated but it shows a lot of elegance as well. Long, slightly drier aftertaste. Some roasted notes and still a hint of caramel. SHERRYNOTES.COM
