Wine & Spirits, 92 Points 

"This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background." 

Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points 

"This traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It's dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It's not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn't syrupy. But it's certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, maple and brown sugar flavors. For anyone who likes a sweet Sherry that's balanced, this is a good place to go." 

Decanter, 90 Points 

"Inviting, with hints of orange blossom, raisin and pickled walnut aromas, smoked nut, citrus peel and peppery spice on the palate." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"One of the great icons of Lustau. Its aging process mimics that of some 17th century wines developed during transatlantic journeys to distant Spanish colonies. Dark mahogany colour with bronze hues. Concentrated aromas of ripe fruit, mocha, cacao and toffee. Very complex on the palate, with clean acidity. Taste of raisins, nuts and candied orange. To achieve this, after aging separately in their own soleras, the Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez that comprise it, are combined and undergo a second aging process in a solera of 33 barrels at the Sacristía de Bodegas Lustau, with its elevated humidity and temperatures that replicate the climatic conditions that the wines would have experienced on their journeys."
