1958 Gonzalez Byass

Post by g-man » 09:13 Mon 11 Feb 2019

As noted from the Port Vintages book, ordered from Berns Steakhouse in Tampa Florida on Feb 09, 2019.

Decanted for 30 minutes before drinking.

What a lovely rich milky bouquet. Malty, rich, black cherries and plums.
The palate shows a lovely rich milk chocolate mixed with freshly ground cinnamon and all spice, still holding a decent amount of kirsch fruit. The light cocoa powder finish goes on for about a minute.

Absolutely lovely to drink now.
94.
