    The secret of fine sherry lies in its careful aging and blending. Lustau has perfected their technique and has been producing award-winning sherries since 1896. Aged in American Oak casks for 12 years, this dry oloroso offers appetizing aromas of pecan, walnut and fig, infused with a touch of smoke. Concentrated flavors of roasted nuts, dried fruit and brown sugar are complemented by delicate acidity and a smooth, mellow finish.

    Other reviews... "If you are looking for a dry sherry made in a slightly more oxidized style, the non-vintage Dry Oloroso Don Nuno Solera Reserva is your choice. Again, a nuttiness (in this case, walnuts) intermixed with a hint of Chinese black tea combine with salty, caramelized flavors make for a delicious glass of sherry".
