  • Really good. Definitely brings out the salinity and interesting notes from the Sherry. I'll be drinking this a lot. — ★★★★★
  • not that great with cooking sherry! — ★★
  • Clean at the outset, then some interesting tastes emerge (including the saltiness of the sherry). Good drink when you want something different — ★★★★
