Having purchased this whilst visiting the Gonzalez Byass Distillery last year, I've been very careful to only allow myself a small glass very occasionally. It is without doubt the most delicious 'sherry' I have ever tasted rom the first sample at the distillery to the New Years glass I have beside me now, it is simply wonderful. Rich, thick, fruity and totally over the top. It's difficult to resist the temptation to stick my tongue in the glass to remove all trace of this thick oozy delectation! Highly recommended.

Pours like crude oil - thick and deep brown, with a mahogany glint. Lots of mocha on the nose, and a core of dried fruit - like raisins soaked in brandy. Almost leathery, it's so thick. Surprisingly mild and light taste. Golden syrup, dried cherry and apricot, long milky coffee finish. This is lovely, delicate stuff with good balance - but no knockout
