I just finished a bottle of Jimenez Gonzalez Hnos Golden Cream Sherry this evening.  Two weeks ago my father gave me case that had five bottles of the cream sherry.  The bottles were from my sister's wedding in 1967.  The case was on its side, however, one bottle must have had a very slow leak that leaked onto two bottles.  The leakage was similar to dried molasses.  All the bottles had a tissue wrapper so the leakage did not get onto the gold foil wrapped bottles.  The sherry was delightful.  I intend on saving one bottle for Dad's passing and the others for my girls wedding.    Funny thing, the bottles lasted long after my sisters's marriage dissolved in divorce.
