Re: 1966 Warre

30% brown-red, good legs. Nose a bit odd, meaty again, like the T66. Lovely smooth sugar entry, heat builds a little through middle, to a soft caramel finish. very nice in the end!

Re: 1966 Taylor

25% opacity orange brown. Nose not great, a bit meaty. Quite a spiritous entry, some sweet/sugar, sharpness mid palate before a gentle long slightly caramel aftertaste.

+1hr: this had softened more, less sharpness.

Re: 1966 Sandeman

30% opacity, red brown, good legs. Slight hospital smell! Mint would be kind, more like antiseptic. Good structure, gentle entry, aniseed, fennel, some very mild heat towards the finish. Better than the nose suggested.

Re: 1966 Graham

30% opacity lovely orange brown, great legs. Not much on the nose, some caramel? Wonderful structure, velvety, fruit from start to mid, oranges. Heat builds a little at the end to a very graceful finish and a long aftertaste.

+1hrs: in the nose, caramel for sure.

Re: Small 1966 Horizontal on 22 of April

But the problem is clearly at my end...when I now load the pdf on my iPhone it shows the version you are describing...something odd with IE on my laptop.

Am seeing Niepoort bottom right on page 1, and two crosses middle of page 2, and Sandeman nowhere.

Re: ’60 versus ’63: placemats updated

Who is to print? I can print. Is decanting still happening at Rob's place? And what does that mean for arrival time of juice to TBH? I hope to be able to get to TBH for about 1745. I should be able to drop off printed material before then if required. Someone pls advise. EDIT: I've just remembered ...
