We recently rediscovered these aged sherries from Williams & Humbert and were highly impressed. Williams & Humbert is famed for it's Dry Sack sherry, but the 20 year and 30 year sherries they make are absolutely enthralling and stand out in a crowd. The Jalifa is a profoundly aromatic and memorable Amontillado.
"The NV Jalifa Rare Old Dry Amontillado Solera Especial VORS is at least 30 years old, starts its life with nine years of biological aging in Sanlucar, therefore a Manzanilla, and then moved to Jerez to complete the oxidative aging. Bright amber color, the nose is very complex, with white chocolate, sea breeze, dried herbs and blond tobacco. The salty palate shows a medium- to full-bodied wine, with great balance and polish as well as a very long finish."-Luis Gutierrez 94 Points - Wine Advocate
