Hidalgo Gran Reserva 200 Brandy

Brandy de Jerez, Sherry Brandy, comes exclusively from the Sherry District. The production and ageing of the Sherry Brandy follows the traditional methods of the region.

The brandy is obtained from grape distillate and then aged in butts of American oak for several years. The casks have previously been used in the ageing of Cream and Oloroso Sherries, which ensure that the brandy gains exceptional smoothness with ageing. The ageing system used is known as the Solera system,(fractional blending) which consists of a continuous mix of young brandies with older ones resulting in a brandy of consistent quality.

The base brandy that formed this particular 'solera' originated from the cellars of one of the members of the Hidalgo family where it had been kept under lock and key for two generations without being touched.

Winemag 90-95 Points

Pretty burnished-orange hue. Generous opening bouquet emits scents of nougat and cake frosting; aeration stimulates deep aromas of dark caramel, roasted almonds, oloroso Sherry and rancio. In the mouth it tastes of white raisins, cake batter, orange rind and oak resin. Finishes manageably sweet. A gorgeous treat from Spain.

Tasting Notes: Flavour: Full, concentrated smooth.

Aroma: Complex rich woody aroma with nuances of walnuts.
