  • Delicious, complex. Perhaps a tad sweet for our taste (may depend on the sweetness of the PX Sherry(We used a different PX sherry)), but I quibble. Will certainly make again. — ☆☆☆☆
  • 'twas a bit too sweet for my taste, reducing the Ximénez to 1/2 oz and using 1/2 oz of East India solera dried it out a bit. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Complex, smoky, brown sugary, interesting. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Try with East India Solera — ☆☆☆
  • needs to have the sherry balanced — ☆☆☆
  • Good. Used El Maestro Sierra PX and was not too sweet - actually added a bit more sherry as it was a bit lost initially. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Unusual and quite good. Used Alvear Cream Sherry (ximenez). Managed to be dry, rich and boozy at the same time. — ☆☆☆☆
  • very niace, used vida and rum fire, played very well with the sherry. MAybe cut back sherry(too sweet)

We made it strictly according

We made it strictly according to the recipe: at that sweetness, perhaps better as dessert drink than aperitif. (Spouse says, though: No sweeter than a Manhattan.)  We’ll try with slightly less PX Sherry.  Rich & balanced: all the flavors come through.
