Pedro Ximenez Don Guido V.O.S.
The sweetness in here is extreme, a bit too extreme in that i could drink this with a salty cheese etc but on it’s own it’s too cloying for me, but still delicious.
And i could drink this one all night long, sweet, but not too sweet, hints of spice and a long sweet, bot dry, finish, oh yes please, a bottle of this for Christmas day i think.
Oloroso Emperatriz Eugenia
Very familiar due to the use of oloroso casks in whisky, very nutty and still a little too tarte on the palate for me, remember i don’t really drink wine at all. Not for me on the palate although this is the first one i could really drink a decent amount of.
Amontillado (Gutiérrez Colosía)
The nose on this Sherry is fabulous, it does everything i would want in something to drink and is even quite whisky like in nature, the palate however didn’t do it for me, just too tarte for my palate.
Soluqua Manzanilla Pasada
Some of the others got this much saltier on the nose than i did, maybe it’s just something i don’t pick up too well, it’s very drinkable, even for a sherry novice like me.
