The Gran Duque de Alba Oro is Brandy de Jerez aged in rare, Palo Cortado sherry casks. The spirits owes it's name to one of Spain's most famous generals, whose heir was one of first to taste it.
We tasted Gran Duque de Alba Oro at Meeting No. 64 on November 16, 2017. We rated it very highly at 3.54 out of 5. Gran Duque de Alba Oro ranks 2nd overall in Brandy. At a street price of $128, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.
Pomegranate juice. Deep and dense. Upfront and peppery and then drops off a bit before lingering raisin film coats your teeth. Chewy, but a little much. Museum piece.
Warm, soft pillow of Raisin Bran honeycomb. Very drinkable and nurturing.
So weird. Equal parts weird and super weird. Some cedar shavings and sugar perfume. Plus a dude holding an eggplant.
