Nine years ago, Nicolas Palazzi, founder of PM Spirits, a prominent spirits importer, was at a wine dinner in NYC. At that sherry dinner in the city, they were guided attendees through a myriad of the finest sherries. At the end of the night, there were two bottles that stood head and shoulders above the rest. They both bore a name unfamiliar to Palazzi at the time … Equipo Navazos.
A year later and Palazzi is in Spain on a brief trip with family. Still enamored with those sherries, he scheduled a meeting with Ojeda, one half of the duo behind Equipo Navazos. Ojeda brought Palazzi to the famed sherry bodegas of Valdespino and La Guita where they sampled old, rare, and truly singular wines. Only then, Palazzi said, he realized Equipo Navazos was not itself a sherry producer, but an independent bottler. They sought out the best casks of sherry from various producers throughout Jerez and bottled them with little or no filtering.
This discovery led to the exchange of bottles, and soon thereafter the joint venture Navazos Palazzi. Since then, they have bottled whisky from Spain and Scotland, rum from the Caribbean, gin from Italy, and brandy from Spain, with all these spirits aged (entirely or partially) in high quality, freshly emptied sherry casks provided by Equipo Navazos.
Spanish Brandy from Jerez first matured in Oloroso sherry casks then finished for three years in a Pedro Ximenez cask.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Kettle corn, plums, and nuts. It has a lovely musty, earth finish.
