In past centuries, casks with sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies and developed an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style. Dark mahogany in color with green-amber edge. It offers vibrant notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, shoe polish, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, all very well integrated. On the palate it is smooth and rich at the beginning, full of prune and burned oranges peel flavors. Provocative spicy notes appear just before its nuttiness and terrific acidity cuts through the sweetness.
