Re: 1948 Taylor

T48, dark red, 50% opaque. Fantastic. Rich, very smooth, sweetness throughout, a hint of El Rey del Mundo smoke. And very long. Wonderful.

Re: 1948 Fonseca

F48. Dark red, 40% opaque. Unctuous, rich and soft. Lighter than perfect, but delicious and lovely. Early evening I preferred this to the T48, slightly, but within an hour the Fonseca was the junior of the two.

Re: 1948 Graham

G48. Centre dark-red 30% opaque, edge orange. Mid-weight, a little white pepper, with a softness and richness especially early palate. I liked.

Re: 1897 Graham

G1897, half of a magnum, decanted 06:30. Clear, orange, 20% opaque. Palate long and fresh, dry and acidic. Then sweetness, which reminded me of a yellow opal fruit. Far too faded for my palate, but still alive.

Re: 1867 Unknown

?1867. Yellow-orange, 25% opaque. Nose dry, no sugar, oxidised. Taste strongly not liked.

Perhaps fermented dry before the addition of alcohol.

Re: Tue 5th June - Vintage with an '8' theme.

New policy: previously I have PM’d people with these links. These PMs have been mostly ignored. No longer doing that: posting in the arrangement thread is the notification.

Re: The Standard Food Order

  • Duck liver pâté;
  • Sirloin steak, blue, with skinny fries,
    + Green beans with shallots;
  • Perhaps Welsh Rarebit, super extra cheesy plus plus more.

In what sense failed? Oxidised? Cork not branded? Both?

Re: Tue 5th June - Vintage with an '8' theme.

1867 has several possibilities, most certainly Cockburn, Croft, Dow, Feuerheerd, Graham, Martinez, Sandeman, and Tuke Holdsworth. Perhaps also Gould Campbell, Offley, and Rebello Valente.
