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.

N58. Red-pink, 20% opaque. Great balance, a sharpness I liked, mid sweetness, and a hint of spearmint.

45% opacity, red brown. Nose of toasted caramels. Rich mouthfeel, oranges and molasses, tannin gone, still good structure.
