- Closure: Cork
Dry Sack Sherry comes curiously packaged in its own brown hessian sack (not shown here). The sack packaging was added to the brand by Carl Williams in 1906, the second-generation director of Williams & Humbert, the producers of Dry Sack. Mr. Williams’ inspiration for this gimmick is somewhat of a mystery. In wine terms, the word “sack” has no real relevance to any particular style but probably comes from a sweet full drink that was known as “Sherris Sack”. Suffice to say, the bag has no purpose other than to catch the eye.
The Williams Humbert Dry Sack is made from a blend of Amontillado, Oloroso and Pedro Ximinez sherries. Bright, tawny onion brown colour with green hue. Excellent nose, with aroma of walnut, salted almonds and flor yeast. The palate is a surprise with its distinct rancio character over layers of almond, walnut and yeast lees. Excellent length, with just a hint of salt re-emerging on the back palate, followed by a very long yeast lees, rancio aftertaste.
