Very pleasantly surprised!
We bought this particular type of sherry at Christmas to add to trifle, dundee cake and homemade cranberry sauce. It has a wonderful flavour (sweet aromas of raisins, caramel, dates and figs) and very nice served chilled with dessert! Would definitely buy again.
This is a lovely sherry. Really thick and rich, perfect for a nightcap. It says it can also be used over ice cream and i've yet to try that but i can imagine it's lovely.
Best for Chocolate Deserts and Christmas
This Sherry served chilled is just the best with chocolate deserts or Christmas puddings or mince pies. Check out the Tesco recipe for mincemeat you will never buy a jar again once you have made it, so simple and so delicious. It has pears, ginger and of course Pedro Ximenez. Trust me I’m a chief👩🍳
very dark. Very sweet. Not much depth or breadth of flavour: it is very 'one dimensional'. Very slightly cloying aftertaste , but . . . . Alcohol content - or at least the alcoholic 'kick' - is very low. It seems more like a sweet cordial than a sherry. It would improve with a small addition of Calvados . . not much, just a 'soupspoon'. Barbadillo Pedro Ximenez is te times better and can be found online for just over £12 for a full bottle. Barbadillo Laura is even better but as scarce as unicorn tears. Recommended? Only if you are prepared to mix it.
