'Thirsty Thursday #5" is a treat, we are going to look at an amazing Spanish Brandy, the 2013 Navazos-Palazzi Single Cask Spanish Brandy release: Jerez Brandy Solera Gran Reserva Fino Cask (click for the technical info, and where to find it . . .).
This brandy is completely unmanipulated, no additives, unfiltered and the perfect representation of the truest, purest, layered elegance possible in, Spanish Brandy. This Brandy could -EASILY- be counted among the finest in the world.
Here I will present my tasting notes, if you get a chance to try this--DO NOT HESITATE. I have tasted (and finished) bottle 30 out of only 720. That is it, after that there is no more-of this offering. It is a singular, exceptional demonstration of a magnificently crafted spirit.
The nose shines with brilliant sign of being well aged with the fruit
and wood bound inexorably; beginning at candied greengage &
Mirabelle plums, walnut, pecan, delicate nutmeg and canella with elegant
oak intricacies that evoke an urgent desire to taste. With a time the
aromas continue to evolve showing maderized peach, baked apricots,
quince and supple Sultana dusted with fresh spice.
The palate entry is oily, starting with a creamy demonstration of the
aromas that intricately reveal nuance after nuance culminating at the
fresh baking spice on the back palate stirring a vibrant, invigorating
transition into the finish.
The dawdling finish wafts flavor after flavor demonstrating a
magnificent depth that drifts dreamily away to a cleansing,
sophisticated and graceful finale.
This is unparalleled Brandy of incredibly exquisite quality, some of the finest I have ever tasted.
*Tasted on four separate occasions in various glassware
