Lustau East India Solera Sherry NV

Sherry Jerez - Manzanilla, SpainEast India Solera is a sweetened Oloroso. The name refers to the East India Company, a British trading company that transported cotton, silk, spices, tea, saltpetre and other commodities from the East Indies. Lustau's East India references the historic seafaring tradition, and is made from a selection of approximately 80% oloroso and 20% pedro ximénez butts that have aged separately, and then blended and put into a solera for 3 years. This is a potent, sweeter style, around 130 g/l of sugar, placing it in the Cream category. Potent with tobacco, maple, figs, baked orange, espresso, and creamy milk chocolate. The oloroso salty, walnutty edge is welcome, cutting across px's dense sweetness. The warming (20 degree) finish lingers with sugar roasted walnuts and orange oil. Best as an accompaniment to maple tarts or rum pudding.Tasted: 27 June 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 32.99 500 BCLS ON 24.00 500 LCBO QC 24.00 500 SAQ Producer: Bodegas LustauDistributors: The Delf Group
