1897 Graham

An ‘Eights’ tasting, to be the second or fourth digit of the vintage, arranged by Tony, who provided many of the bottles including an 1867. And Alex provided Graham 1897.

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.

15% opacity, amber, clear. Fresh lively nose, toffee. Silky entry, full mouthfeel, heat and some acidity mid to late palate. Super long aftertaste, leathery/beefy.
