Are the 1963s coming into their second wind?
Recognising that this scientific question needed scientific experiment, a round dozen of us gathered to test some 1963s.

Another bottle from the pipe sold at Bonham's in 2016 (see previous case tasting here); despite a decent colour and no evidence of seepage (intact cork and capsule prior to decanting), this was sadly quite faulty to taste.
Rating: not rated.

35% opacity. Nose of burnt rubber and cold coffee. Bitter to taste. Faulty. Seems like the bottles from the pipe auctioned at Bonhams are a bit of a crap shoot.
