TN: Duff Gordon India Sherry NV...(short/boring)

Tried this last night to share at tonight’s Pig+Fig dinner:

  1. Duff Gordon India Sherry (Solera established: 1768; 20%; Imported Exclusively by CortiBros/Sacramento) Duff Gordon/Jerez NV: Very dark brown/pale PX color; bit alcoholic nutty/walnutty/coffee/toffee bit smokey Oloroso very complex beautiful nose; fairly dry rather tart intense coffee/walnutty/smokey/toffee dry Oloroso quite complex flavor; very long/lingering quite dry bit austere bit alcoholic intense dry Oloroso/walnutty/walnutty/pecan pie/toffee bit smokey very complex finish that goes on&on; a beautiful example of a complex/aged dry Oloroso sherry.

A wee BloodyPulpit:

  1. This is a sherry I bought from DarrellCorti in the mid-'70’s and stored since then in my cellar. Cannot find out anything out on the InterNet about this wine. Will have to ask Darrell. But it was a pretty spectacular example of an old Oloroso sherry.

Any idea when bottled? I’ve a few old bottled Sherries somewhere.

I bought it from Darrell in mid '70’s. So probably bttld in early '70’s I would guess.

This is what Darrell had to say on this sherry:

As always…the edumacator.

Fascinating! I’ve a few old Sandeman, Osborne, and Gonzalez Byass bottles. Even a Valdespino Ynocente some decades old.
