Corin made this rare liqueur from dry grown, low yielding old vine Swan Valley Navera and Pedro Ximenez. Two barriques (small oak barrels) from the early eighties were deliberately left to age for a further twenty-five years prior to bottling.

The same characters are repeated on the palate which is enhanced further with toffee and treacle flavours. Developed, viscous and rare. Alc/Vol 19.00
