The hue is old gold with mahogany highlights. The nose is fine, spicy and very clean, with a suggestion of nuts and cinnamon. Full and sweet on the palate, with underlying hints of aniseed and a long and persistent flavor.
Soberano is a solera brandy and number one in sales of Brandy de Jerez from Spain. Soberano brandy is the number one brandy from Gonzalez Byass. Soberano brandy is aged in former American oak sherry barrels. Just as with their sherry, Gonzalez Byass uses the Solera system for their brandy. After each bottling, new brandy is added to the barrels to ensure they are always full. This brandy solera system was established 150 years ago, so a few drops from the original distillation is in each bottle.
