This Oloroso’s dose of pedro ximénez accounts for its aromas of raisins, dried fruits and figs, as well as its creamy, spicy texture. Complex notes of cinnamon, clove, iodine and mineral details build into the finish. Serve it with cinnamon flan.

Last reviewed in 1994 and rated Five Stars. Dark brown cola color; excellent purity. Deep aromatic notes of dates, prunes, and figs mingle and stir way deep in the sampling glass; aeration introduces a nuttiness/nougat quality that merges well with the dried fruit elements. Entry is rich, lusciously pruny, leathery, and toasty, if just a touch lighter than I recall; midpalate expands marginally on the dried/ripe fruit aspect, bringing in chewy notes of buttercream, cocoa, and vanilla bean. Very good, even excellent but not as awesome as I remember from the 1900s. Highly Recommended.

Dark amber. Rich, date and fig. But big spicy palate. Drink now.

This traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It’s dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It’s not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn’t syrupy. But it’s certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, maple and brown sugar flavors. For anyone who likes a sweet Sherry that’s balanced, this is a good place to go.

This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximandeacute;nez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background.
