- 'This is VORS, which means the average age of sherries in the blend is 30 years or more, and considering the age of this wine, it's one of the best value examples of its type. Age is the magic ingredient with many sherries: with the exception of purely biologically aged wines (finos and manzanillas), it's age that brings the real complexity. This would have started life as a Fino, and you still get the ghost of the salty tang of biological ageing under flor here. It's supplemented with astonishing nutty, woody complexity and a hint of smoke, as well as some tar and treacle notes in the background. Lovely old wood characters dominate, with some furniture polish notes. Dry, intense and exotic, with such a range of layered flavours and an eternal finish, with concentrated acidity as well. 94/100' - Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
'Deeply complex and wonderfully inviting aromas of sweet toffee, tar, dried mango, burnt orange peel and Christmassy clove and cinnamon spice. Vibrant and beautifully structured on the palate, with incredible clarity and purity. French mahogany fid and caramel are dominant on a delicious, neverending finish.' - Decanter Magazine
