El Tresillo 1874

For me, this sherry is the boss.


It is a bright red, orangey chestnut in colour. On the nose there is caramel and some hints of fruit (orange and even ribena) and aromas of chocolate, tobacco, liquorice, cloves and spices.

On the palate it is elegant but has powerful flavours: black treacle, bitter baked oranges and dark chocolate. It really is awesome – in fact the first time I took it to a wine tasting it was overwhelming.

Overall, this is outstanding, and at 70 euro or so a bottle it is also outstanding value.
