1963 Cockburn

5hrs decant
One of the lightest VPs I have encountered. Light brown in colour.
Beautiful and inviting nose. A very spicy mouth feel. Somewhat similar to an aged cognac and hints of dried berries - Christmassy. Still feel like it needs to breathe for a good while longer.

12hrs decant.
Much smoother now (although less powerful nose) although it has a small alcohol kick. Final thoughts that it's becoming much more tawny in taste.
