Barbadillo Oloroso Full Dry is a sherry produced in Andalusia, Spain that boasts a deep amber color and a velvety texture. The nutty aroma and flavor of the sherry is the result of the long aging process in American oak barrels, which imbues the sherry with notes of oak, toasted almond, and dried fruit.
With a dry finish, this sherry is perfect to pair with savory dishes that have a rich and bold flavor. Its full-bodied structure and complex taste make it a favorite among sherry connoisseurs, who appreciate the high-quality ingredients and traditional production methods used to create Barbadillo Oloroso Full Dry. A must-try for any sherry enthusiast looking to expand their palate.
Mahogany in colour and aromas reminiscent of noble oak and dried fruit and nuts. Syrupy in the palate
