    (Bodegas Toro Albalá Don PX Gran Reserva (Montilla-Moriles)) A treacle-dark hue, with a roasted brown rim. Thick and oily legs. It has that very characteristic PX character on the nose, which marks these wines whether they be Spanish, Australian or from anywhere else: a sort of oily, deeply organic and vegetal nut and axle grease aroma which is found in no other wine. Nice weighty entry, full and oily, peppery and full of treacle toffee, walnut and raisin character. These wines lack the acidic freshness to be considered truly great, but they are great fun and certainly pack a punch.

    (Bodegas Toro Albalá Don PX Gran Reserva (Montilla-Moriles)) As dark as the night, but with a treacle-brown rim. Glorious nose, very classic, full of treacle, axle grease, molasses, Demerara sugar, vegetal notes and iron. The palate is no less impressive, being full of creamy coffee, treacly richness and absolutely packed with flavour. A huge wine, richly coating the palate, with some decent acidity despite the massively rich mouthfeel. For PX fans only. Lovely.
