COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: Says "Riserva" on label and has a red seal. Vintages begin from 2008.

Just like the Barriquée, the Riserva is ‘triple-fermented.’ Primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel. What sets the Riserva apart is the next step: 15-18 months spent in wine wooden vats, compared to the Barriquée’s 8-10 months; the wooden vats were used previously for Barbera (red wine), for maybe 150 years.
This adds an elegant wine-like quality and a dry, oaky character to the deep, earthy, sourness that the Barriquée is known for.

Thanks to Mike to bringing this by Alex’s. Bottle served into a Bells tulip...Pours a medium brown with red, highlights not much different than the regular Panil, a finger of tan head holds pretty well...Aroma stats off surprisingly sweet, vanilla, cognac, fruit, then has a little oak...Taste is decent, the cognac comes through a ton more with a weird alcohol finish, rounded out with oak, dark fruits and vinegar. I wasn’t a huge Panil fan the first time, this dind’t really improved anything to me, if anything brings out more cognac than I’d care for.

750mL courtesy of Travlr. Looks like the normal Panil Barriquee but there’s the RESERVA sticker right on the neck of the bottle. What sounds like a shoe-in for a top beer of mine ends up being a fairly poor showing. Pour is muddy brown with not much of a head that leaves wispy lace. Aroma is slightly metallic, old toffee, caramel, sticky fruits, oxidized fruits, rum soaked cherries. Taste is Kalamata olives straight up along with tart apples, cider apples, mild sulphur, citrus, slight red wine vinegar, tawny oak. Pretty much a giant mess.
