    July 29, 2013 - Complex spectrum of ebony-amber-gold. Profound, perfumed bouquet of cashew, Brazil, macadamia, pecan, all the nuts imaginable, American oak, linoleum. Full bodied yet fresh on the palate, salty, acidic, wonderful nutty aromas. Unbeatable length on the finish. Nuts, sea salt, toasted bread. Goes on forever. One of the marvels of the wine world. Beats the competition hands down with the combination of both remarkable freshness and full tertiary maturity, a dichotomy the almacenista VORS don't usually possess. Great.
    Asombrante. Me quedo con la sensacion de los aromas de las calles del Puerto de Santa Maria, caminando entre los almacenes. La sal de la brisa del mar, las barricas de roble, y el vino noble. Me quito el sombrero

    June 19, 2013 - VORS. 50cl bottle, purchased in 2003, excellent cellarage since. Very interesting style, quite oxidative, sour butter, coffee and toasted nuts; good intensity and weight but relatively rounded, dry but seems softer than usual, attractive but not as precise as some; good length, buttery finish.

    February 11, 2013 - Even turbid (surely a bad storage), with an unusual coffee bean aroma, this Oloroso has a superior class that transcends what a simple Sherry is.... Supreme!

    Incluso turbio (seguramente una mala conservación), con un inusual aroma a pepita de café, este Oloroso tiene una clase superior que transciende a lo que es un simple Jerez... Supremo!

    September 7, 2012 - Sharp and vibrant. Nutty feel to it, oxitative bitterness (in a nice way) and quite long. One has to like the style to enjoy this but indeed very nice.

    December 6, 2010 - What is the best thing about this wine? Too much to be chossen: its ambar colour, its all-nuts aroma, its rotundity on the palate, its biterness, its long, very long aftertaste....a real VORS...All Sherry is about!

    ¿Qué es lo mejor de este vino? Demasiado para elegir: su color ambar, su aroma a frutos secos, su rotundidad en boca, su amargor, su largo, muy largo postgusto.... Un VORS de verdad....todo lo que da de sí un Jerez.
