Part of the stocks of Hijos de Rainera Pérez Marin purchased by Grupo Estévez (La Guita/Valdespino), this amontillado solera was created from the finest butts of manzanilla pasada; and here you get a true sense of the uniqueness of Amontillado from Sanlúcar de Barrameda - fine, delicate with a pronounced character from the years of ageing under rich flor.

If I could rate this one 11, I would... In Dutch: “In your face” neus: een explosie van geroosterde noten, amandel, hars, een kruidenkabinet vol, citrusschil, zeezout. Hier kan je uren aan ruiken en altijd komt er iets nieuws bij. Boenwas, wierook, houtoven. Naarmate de wijn wat opwarmt komen nog meer zilte tonen boven: zeewier, strand… Intense smaakbom op de tong die aanvangt met uitgesproken ziltigheid, daarna prikkelende kruidigheid en rokerigheid. Is dit droog? Niet echt. Is dit zoet? Niet echt. Dit is perfect in evenwicht. De afdronk duurt minuten. “Amontillado at its brillant zenith”. Kippenvel en een eerbiedige stilte zijn hier het gevolg van.

49 La Bota de Amontillado. Medium mahogany- looks more like an Oloroso than an Amontillado, which gives some indication of extreme ageing. The nose is not as I was expecting. It's deep, slightly reductive, hints of caramel, seaweed, wet pebbles, old oakwood- very unusual and inviting. It's very viscous on the glass - the tears are staining. On the palate, it's very powerful but not in an over-done way. Lots of salinity, rancid savoury character - iodine and charcoal / graphite. The semblance of acidity appears to be off the charts - my mouth is watering like crazy. (Not sure if this is actual acidity as deliberate oxidised sherries aren't necessarily known for raging acidity.) There's a sour bitterness here that is very powerful and might not be liked by everybody. The finish goes on for ages. This is a connoisseur fortified wine - I am sure the average punter will hate this as the flavour profile is so uniquely different. Therefore only drink with sherry-heads. For sheer uniqueness it gets a high score.
