One & A Half Bottle Of Sherry

I have said it before and will probably say it again and again - I drink way too little Sherry!

NV Fine Old Oloroso Sherry, ?
Imported by J. B. Hinkers Nachfolger, München in the 30`s? The 40`s? The bottles is a bit crooked and tilt to the right.
The nose is fine and lively with notes of herbs, dryroasted nuts, gravel, dried sage and veal stock. Not that deep though.
The taste has a fine intensity and are medium dry with notes of dry red apples, nuts, gravel, herbs and herbs. Lacks complexity but keeps things together in a nice way. Not amiss.
84p   (tasted 2019/01)


NV Oloroso Tradicion 30 Years, Bodegas Tradicion
A very deep, hauntingly beautiful nose with lovely notes of dried tangerines, ski wax, white raisins, band aid, soot, dried mushrooms and about 50 more scents... Stunning!
The taste is very tight and intense with grace and poise, with notes of apricots, pan fried nuts, tar, herbs and a gymcarpet. The finish is counted in minutes. Even better than when tasted three years ago (a different bottling though).
95p   (tasted 2019/01)
