This Rare Cream Sherry from Marks and Spencers is the perfect present for an uncle or aunt, Grandparent, or elderly next door neighbour. Aged in oak barrels it has a luscious beautifully balanced rich sweet flavour with deep spice notes and plump juicy fruits. The taste is reminiscent of Christmas cake
In fact the sherry can be perfectly paired with a slice of fruity Marks and Spencer Christmas cake.
Its mahogany colour and gently spiced aromas, give way to flavours of plump sundried raisins, and buttersctoch caramel, its finish is pecan and walnut tasting. As the sherry is so sweet is is delicious served chilled with a little bowl of Marks and Spencer with salted almonds. It makes the perfect apertif before dinner or a late evening snack. When I was little it was sherry and salted almonds that were left for Santa.
Although salt and sweet make a wonderful combination, so do sweet and sweet. Sweet rich sherry and bittersweet chocolate nuts.
These chocolate covered nuts from Marks and Spencer - white chocolate covered almonds, dark chocolate covered cranberries, and salted caramel chocolate brazil nuts - go wonderfully with this sherry served room temperature, the flavours complimenting each other.
Sherry and Nuts from Marks and Spencer - there you have it the perfect last minute Christmas present. And it is so good, you'll even want to pop a bottle in your own Christmas shopping.
That's it for now ...
