1963 Dow

Post by g-man » 08:42 Mon 26 Nov 2018

Clear ruby colour with hints of bricking around the edges.

Decanted 3 hours.

Absolutely lovely nose of honeyed dates, freshly ground allspice mixed with some cardamon. On the palate shows some gingered graham crackers but then opens up to a lovely smooth cinnamon dried currants. There is a plethora of rich dried fruits throughout the nose and the palate on this and it finishes with a nice hint of cherry?/red fruit.

94-95.
