Nutty and intense, like peanut brittle reduced to liquid form—but with less than half the corn syrup. It delivers beautiful texture and intensity; it's almost fruity, but then mushroom, almond and macadamia nut take over. With perfect weight and a finish that doesn't quit, this is a great dry Sherry.

Pale tawny with a hint of green at the rim. Very nutty nose with the pungent creaminess of well-aged sherry and just enough sweetness to compensate for the dry treacle character. Much drier than Harvey's 12-year-old Cream sherry and with more rancio character. An amazing amount of pleasure for under a tenner. Come on, wine drinkers, how long are you going to ignore such bargains?
