William Humbert Don Guido 20 years old Pedro Ximenez Tasting note

By Miguel in Tasting , Recommended , William & Humbert

“ Shh! Don’t tell anyone this wine cost just 30. Awesome dessert wine.”

89
William Humbert Don Guido 20 year Pedro Ximenez
Williams & Humbert is famed for it's Dry Sack sherry, but the 20 year and 30 year sherries they make are absolutely enthralling and stand out in a crowd.

This 20 years old Pedro Ximenez wine really set the bar for other sweet wines to reach. Lovely sweet and complex with lots of notes of burnt sugar, nuts and raisins. A crack!

This dram has a white-like color.

Nose (88): inexistent. raisins, old, sweet, bananas, nuts, grapes, floral. First nosing data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.

Palate (92): . sweet, raisins, nuts. Bouquet data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.

Finish (88): no finish. raisins, nuts. Finish length is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.

So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this William Humbert Don Guido 20 year Pedro Ximenez with 89 points over 100.
