I am staring out of my study window into the garden, which is very colourful at this time of year thanks to the flowers of two different types of bush. Name the bushes.

Re: 1955 Mackenzie

70% opacity, dark red. Sweet, tannins still very present, lots of dark fruit and spices. Very different from the others on show. Plenty of fruit in there, but seems to lack acidity to give it backbone, which makes it strange that it has lasted this long.

Re: 1955 Cockburn

30% opacity, mature red-brown, yellow rim. Caramels and very subtle tones of orange on the nose. Fine bodied, gentle heat mid to late palate, really gentle acidity - makes the tongue tingle! Oranges come through late on the palate then linger long in the aftertaste. Very fine stuff!
