"Part of a four-bottle pack and not sold separately, the NV Amontillado, the top of the range presented in a square-ish/short, round, stocky bottle, comes from a very old solera from Gaspar Florido of Manzanilla origin. It is sharp and vertical with signs of very old age, powerful and concentrated but keeping elegance, poise and balance. This is truly outstanding and world class."

"One of two Palo Cortados, the NV Palo Cortado was bottled from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was Pedro Romero. It also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately. "

"The NV Palo Cortado "Tu no te Olvides" also comes in a rectangular bottle that resembles a perfume or a liqueur, part of a four-bottle case that is not sold separately, so the price is only approximate as it's not yet exported and is only sold as part of a four-bottle lot. This comes from a single cask of very old wine whose origin was said to be the Ansa Real solera of Gaspar Florido, a mythical, iconic wine. It has more Palo Cortado character than the other one in the series. There is some creaminess and some nutty aromas with a combination of sharp and rounder characteristics on the palate that make it a good example of the style."

"Presented in the same stocky bottle as the Amontillado, the single-cask NV Oloroso, whose origin is a very old wine from Pedro Romero believed to be 60 to 70 years of age, is extremely old, concentrated and powerful, with parameters off the charts by pure evaporation and concentration through old age. It's intense, pungent and penetrating, with a sweet touch that softens the sensation on the palate."
