Torres – Jaime 1 70cl Bottle
Torres – Jaime 1 70cl Bottle from TheDrinkShop
Jaime I is deep, rich and dark amber in colour. It displays a concentrated complex bouquet, with marked overtones of coconut, dried fruits and spices, typical of lengthy ageing. Round and lush, it has the smoothness that characterises great brandies. Jaime I is complex, majestic, with a lingering finish that leaves a velvety imprint on the palate. The Jaime I brandy has been made with very old ‘soleras’ aged from selected distilled white wines. Some of the soleras started off as distilled Parellada wines destined for their Torres 10 brandy, and which have been kept aside for many years to create a valuable stock reserve. These old reserves have been enriched with their best soleras, the oldest being 30 years old. Finally, to complement the aromatic intensity of these brandies with lighter fruity and floral notes, Torres have added a small amount of 1972 eau-de-vie of Folle Blanche, the rarest and noblest of grapes used to make the highest quality pot still brandies.
