Tasting notes:

Note: on the evening, we opened what was expected to be a 1935 Cockburn and discovered it to be a 1950 Cockburn, hence two entries for 1950 Cockburn in the tasting notes.

25% opacity, brown amber, slightly cloudy. Ripe cranberries, tea on the nose. Sweet entry, heat and bitterness early to mid palate. Fruit highly extracted, sugary, some acidity still there to give some structure.
