Oloroso del Puerto JL González Obregón


We continue with our Lustau Almacenistas tasting with this Oloroso del Puerto by Jose Luis Gonzalez Obregon. Yet another 12 year old here, but with none of those five years under flor and the result is markedly different than with the amontillado.

This one had a lot of sweet notes, sweet spices and woody flavours and some of the guys at the table absolutely loved it. For me, there was a slight over balance on the woody side: it was like a juicy chocolate sweet – like a Cadbury eclair – but the caramel flavours were a little burnt and the barrel flavours gave it a bitter finish.

A tasty wine though – maybe would have done better against other olorosos.
