Saurkraut's review of Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry


“I always heard of sherry. It seems to be in every...”

Good Points
Marvellous aftertaste, with incredible, lasting flavor of candied pecans.

Bad Points
VERY sweet. A little TOO sweet if you're not used to that sort of thing.

General Comments
I always heard of sherry. It seems to be in every gothic novel, and anything that was written in the 1800s seems to have a mandatory scene of people sitting around in drawing rooms, being served sherry in crystal goblets. So when a friend suggested I try Harvey's Bristol Cream, I was intrigued enough to try it.

The first sip was overpowering. I took too much at one time, when I should have taken a tiny little taste. My immediate reaction was that it was like Manieshevitz (I don't know if I spelled this right, but I'm referring to overpoweringly sweet Jewish kosher wine).

But afterwards, I was pleasantly amazed. It has an incredible, wonderful aftertaste like I've never experienced before. It's reminiscent of candied pecans.

It IS a little TOO sweet, almost to the point of cloying. But if it's sipped slowly (the elderly man who introduced it to me calls it "sippin' wine") then it's highly enjoyable.
