    Golden tawny caramel colour with green edge. The nose is restrained relative to Sherries from Lustau, but yields aroma of flor yeast, followed by hazelnut and walnut end notes. On the palate, there is a hint of residual sweetness. Moderate length and concentration, followed by a flor nut aftertaste. A more commercial style.
