Thirsty Thursday #5: Navazos Pallazi Single Cask, Jerez Brandy, Solera Gran Reserva, Fino Cask

'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
