It was 10 Years old at bottling, distilled in Spain from Spanish Malt. This 2017 bottling is sourced from the same batch of casks as Navazos Palazzi's previous Spanish malt releases. The spirit is rested at full proof in freshly emptied Oloroso Sherry Casks. This is the "Bota Punta", the cask at the beginning of the bottom row of barrels. The casks ages in a special way: due to its location it is often subjected to more air and light than the other casks in the solera. As well, it is more aerated, as the Bota Punta is the cask most often used to sample distillery guests. This 2017 release is one of 900 bottles, unfiltered, undiluted, and cask strength.

The spirit's proof is gently brought to roughly 60 before going into four single casks, which previously held first fino sherry, and then brandy de Jerez. After four years of rest, the first of these casks, Cask #55 has been bottled unfiltered for release in 2017
