Toro Albala Don PX Vieja Cosecha 1973 – Spain, Montilla-Moriles
“The 1973 Don PX Selección is part of a new range of more accessible old wines, not as extreme as the Convento or Convento Selección ranges of extremely old wines. This is slightly lighter in the palate with a little less sugar, some 320 grams per liter. The vineyards that produced these grapes do not exist today; they were on very soft marls soils. The dehydrated grapes fermented between 3% and 9% and then the wine was fortified and today bottled at 17%. It’s somehow reminiscent of the 1987, very perfumed and aromatic, a little exotic, with even some minty notes. The palate is very concentrated, round, with an oily texture that fills your mouth. Drink 2016-2025.”- 95 Points (Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, April 27, 2016).
Evan Williams Single Barrel 2005 Vintage Bourbon
“The 2005 vintage, as with all of the previous years, is bottled at 43.3% ABV (86.6 proof), and the nose is rich and spicy with clove, black pepper, honey, molasses, tobacco, and a hint of dark chocolate. The taste is spicy with black pepper, cinnamon, molasses, brown sugar, dark chocolate and oak notes. The finish is long, smooth, and sweet with honey, molasses, and a hint of spices.” – 91 Points (WhiskyCast.com)
“Originally produced in 1873 from a carefully guarded botanical recipe, Amaro CioCiaro is a deliciously bittersweet Italian liqueur. Though most often enjoyed as a digestivo, Amaro CioCiaro’s earthy, herbal character makes it a great cocktail component; we’ve heard rumors that it’s a solid substitute for the original Amer Picon formulation.” (CityWineCellar.com)
