94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The NV Amontillado del Duque VORS is Palomino of at least 30 years of age from the Tio Pepe solera. The color is dark amber, with a very powerful nose of old wood, candied fruit and walnuts. The sharpness of the palate is somehow balanced by an off-dry feeling which makes it very drinkable." 

94 points Wine & Spirits
"These soleras, believed to be more than 300 years old, were purchased from the Duke of Medinacelli in 1835. The wines for this Amontillado averaged 30 years in oak, and its severity brings something extremely salty to mind: This is as briny as sea urchin, balanced by a light sweetness that murmurs underneath. The sheer force of the minerality makes no concessions to the fruit flavors. For smoked oysters."

94 points Decanter
"Maple syrup, wood polish, butterscotch and toffee nose. Great finesse on the palate with a silky texture and salty caramel flavours. Long, fresh finish."

93 points Wine Spectator
"Stylish, with warm date, hazelnut, toasted almond and salted caramel notes that extend through the finish, starting dry but ending with a tantalizing echo of sweetness."

93 points Wine Enthusiast
"Toffee and almond aromas are a touch aggressive and hot. Matching the nose, this is intense but still well balanced by core acidity. A giant heaping of rancio blends with flavors of almond skins, apricot and salt in front of a never-ending finish."

Jancis Robinson
"If you love Highland single malt, you will instantly get this peaty, sweet and wild and glossy sherry. It's cobbler's glue and smoked honey on the nose; sea-spray, smoke and Highland honey in the mouth. It tastes of bracken, black with the bruise of mountain streams and mountains stones; of brackish streams salt-licked with minerals; of kumquats pickled in tamarind and smoky with the under-growl of black cardamom. It's satin and sea glass and sunset. Formidably complex and yet approachable. 18/20 points. (TC)"
