Gran Duque De Alba Solera Gran Reserva brandy is one of the most renowned brandies from Jerez. Its extraordinary characteristics are the result of the careful selection of all the raw materials used, beginning with the selection of grapes to the unique distilling process. Gran Duque De Alba is distilled using the same Solera system as sherries and aged for at least three years in oak casks that previously held Oloroso sherry.

"The sumptuous bouquet smells of old leather, old books, toasted marshmallow, pipe tobacco, prune Danish, dried fruit, salted butter and caramel cream. Entry is hugely luscious, succulent, ripe and sweet; the midpalate is concentrated, ripe, fruity, sherry-like and caramelized. Concludes balanced yet sweetly honeyed. A fat, glossy masterpiece. - P.P. (8/1/2008) - Classic/Highest Recommendation"
