Open and very dry, warm, with toffee and baked earth, baked apple notes, chocolate and coffee, but the smell of ground coffee not brewed coffee, really good, dry, serious, salty, works your salivary glands, full and long.
Note: Opened one month before tasting. Less aromatic than expected on the nose: sweet almonds, flowers, wood, varnish notes. Excellent on the palate, creamy, salty notes, almonds, coffee, toasted and brandy flavours. Smooth, long and pleasant ending.

(NV Lustau Almacenista Manzanilla Amontillada de Sanlúcar 1/21 Jurado) Delicate golden brown hue. Lovely, expressive nose, with toffee, burnt orange, baked earth and a sweet, smoky element. Very classic, dry but with a fine, rounded warmness, showing quite a delicious yet balanced weight through the midpalate. Great character reflecting the nose, and super, concentrated length. This is lovely wine.
(NV Lustau Almacenista Manzanilla Amontillada de Sanlúcar 1/21 Jurado) An amber-gold caramel colour. A wonderful nose, full of coffee, toffee and figs, with a burnt character, and yet a fresh lift. Despite this initial promise the wine is relatively light on the palate, clean with strong acidity. Nicely rounded, and I sense a hint of the flor that once graced this wine.
