Brandy Terry1900 Solera Reserva 36%, Fundador
AppearanceMahogany fading to amber, legs.
NoseAttractive slightly biscuity Oloroso nose with traces of oak. It is elegant and clean, not too sweet, and has traces of orange peel, dried fruits, vanilla and toasted nuts and has a freshness about it being not too heavily sherried.
PalateSlightly fuller flavoured than the nose would suggest but nicely balanced between the alcohol, oak and Oloroso and a gentle fruity sweetness. It has a certain charm and good length with the holandas nicely outweighing the aguardientes.
CommentsThis brandy was originally produced by Fernando A de Terry in El puerto de Santa Maria. Terry is not much more than a brand nowadays, after various adventures with Rumasa, Harveys, Pernod Ricard and Beam Suntory over the last 35 years or so, but now belongs to Grupo Fundador. This brandy comes from a 1900 solera and has 3 years average age. The famous "malla Terry" or string net which adorns the bottle was always made by hand by the women of El Puerto.
Price10.15 from the Corte Inglés
