Williams & Humbert 12-Year-Old Oloroso Sherry
Regular award-winner, a fine example of an authentic Oloroso
This is a beautifully bright amber coloured sherry with intense and classic oloroso aromas of walnuts, almonds and dried fruit. Luscious yet perfectly balanced this is a deliciously rich, dry style with a smooth finish.

Super Aperitif and Enjoyable On Its Own
I am a long-term sherry fan - drinking medium Amontillados some years ago. With a recently renewed interest in the drink, my fiancée, plus her friends and I have been enjoying super-luscious, sweet Pedro Ximenez styles. We recently tried a 'bone-dry' Manzanilla, which was only a qualified success as an aperitif – most found it a little austere, despite being quite a good palate cleanser.
However, full marks to Waitrose for stocking this and to W&H for producing such an approachable off-dry appetiser: this is excellent! There are such a nice wide selection of notes in this sherry - it's so good on the nose, and has just a little sweetness to balance the dryness. It boasts a surprising range of exquisite flavours (fresh citrus tang, peel, raisins, fig, pudding – even floral and spice notes) and is very well-judged between very full-bodied and light. There’s enough substance to satisfy, without ever becoming cloying.
As a result of this and its general quality, it's perfect to prepare the palate before a meal, or can simply be enjoyed on its own: highly recommended!

Williams & Humbert Oloroso caught my eye at Christmas when I was looking for a gift. The fact that it was an award winner and very reasonably priced were the attractions, usually I do not purchase for a present without trying but this was the only one on the shelf. Thankfully it was restocked and I have been able to enjoy this gorgeous, superior sherry.
