Oloroso V.O.R.S. Extra Viejo 1/7 - Bodegas El Maestro Sierra (37.5cl)

Dry, Aged 80 Years, Jerez, Spain, Boxed

Very intense nose as you would expect but a beautifully balanced mix of roasted nuts, dried fruits and polished woods. Roasted almonds and hazelnuts, with nice hints of Gianduja (Hazelnut Chocolate). Dried apricots and figs. A little butterscotch. There are interesting traces of sea breeze and mineral notes, moving towards turpentine and varnished oak. Subtle pepper and nutmeg add to the impressive structure and wide character of this wine. The palate is powerful and elegant at the same time. Lots of spices at first, mainly cinnamon and hints and pepper. Some very enjoyable touches of vanilla as well. Moves towards tobacco leaves and moist wood. Hints of walnuts. Herbal, slightly bitter notes. Candied lemon peel and a soft salty touch. Dark chocolate and coffee beans. Terrific length.
