Awards for Carlos I Solera Gran
Carlos I Solera Gran Details
Also from Osborne Sherry Distillery
Carlos I Solera Gran
An XO brandy from Jerez, Spain. It's made using a solera system that's been going for a hundred years! In theory, a tiny amount of the brandy will be this old as the casks are never fully emptied, just topped up from the next oldest cask.
A shimmering gem among its brothers !
Indeed this is a shimmering gem amongst its huge brothers in the Spanish brandy market. It has all the tastes like old leather and ripe plums and muscavardo surgery dates with Christmas cake spices and the warmth you get from a warm brandy when you have just come in from the frosty teeth of winter's day (or night). This one of those brandy's you drink in front if a open harth fire ( not too close I hope) and enjoy with friends or family. IT DESERVES SO MUCH MORE RECOGNITION !. Thank you good folk at master of malt for the opportunity !
