Santa Eufemia 40Y White Tawny. Orange-tawny, 20% opaque. Taste medium-light, lots of heat. Pineapple.

Does anyone recall whether this was produced by Casa de Santa Eufemia or by Quinta de Santa Efemia. Just want to make sure it sits in the right place in the alphabetic index. Thanks.

It was produced by neither of them - it was the Lamelas 40yr white as discussed on the review thread (link)

Hmm, interesting; I'm starting to wonder if there could have been two different bottles, both marked as number 8?
The bottle I noted down had a label identical to the left-hand bottle here; I assume this may be different to the Santa Eufemia mentioned?
Correct - Lamelas 40yr White
